Interests and expertise
My research interests are multi-disciplinary, covering areas of both biology, geography and anthropology. Primarily, they surround biodiversity in Tropical regions and consequently my DPhil research involves investigating the response of biodiversity to Nature-based Solutions within mega-diverse areas of the Global South. During my undergraduate degree, I developed my interests in and specialised in ecology and conservation, with a particular focus upon conservation in the face of climate change. I am also passionate about the power and reach of science and the importance of engaging local communities with scientific developments.
I completed my undergraduate BSc in Biology at the University of Nottingham in 2020 and this degree gave me experience in international fieldwork and hugely developed my understanding of and passion for ecology and conservation. After graduating and prior to starting my DPhil research at Oxford in October 2022, I worked with the London Wildlife Trust and RSBP on conservation projects across London and the south east of England. Currently, alongside my research, I am engaged with departmental outreach and widening the reach of the Oxford Climate Research Network (OCRN).
