My research interests lie in how coastal ecosystems can be protected, managed and restored to support biodiversity whilst also contributing to climate change adaptation and mitigation. I previously worked as a researcher and coordinator at NbSI, focusing on the effects of NbS on the health of ecosystems. I am continuing to collaborate with the NbSI on research projects, alongside pursuing a PhD at the University of Edinburgh investigating the potential for seagrass restoration in Scotland. I am equally passionate about science communication, through art, writing and hands-on activities.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge, specialising in ecology and conservation, and have a range of fieldwork experience, including as an intern on Skomer Island, Wales. My science communication experience includes freelance illustration and co-founding Climate Science, which provides free climate change education.
