Research student, School of Biosciences
I am a passionate ecologist and conservationist currently undertaking a PhD in partnership with the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. I completed a BSc in Biology in 2014 at the University of Southampton followed by an MSc in Conservation Biology at the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology, University of Kent. My research interests include herpetology, mammalogy and ornithology. Previous research experiences include studying caiman in the Peruvian Amazon, bats in Malaysian Borneo and sea birds on Ascension Island. I have experience in industry, having worked as an ecological consultant in the UK for large civil engineering companies for 3 years. During this time I improved my British ecology skills, gaining Natural England barn owl and great crested newt class licences, whilst developing those skills crucial to the business aspect of consultancy. I have returned to academia to both enhance my research skills and to contribute to wildlife conservation.
