Interests and expertise

I am responsible for team and research coordination and identifying potential opportunities for collaboration for the Initiative. This includes organising the NbS Conference 2024, keeping our Bibliography up to date with current NbS research, and expanding our Case Study platform of best-practice NbS from around the world. I also support communications, helping to maximise the reach and impact of NbS research through content creation across multiple channels.


I hold an MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management from the University of Oxford and a BSc in Biology from the University of Bristol. Following my interest in policy mechanisms to support nature recovery, my master’s research focussed on strategies for ecologically robust governance of the new Biodiversity Net Gain policy in England, and has since been used by academics and practitioners.

My academic training is grounded in hands-on experience, ranging from conducting ecological fieldwork in the UK to monitoring loggerhead turtle nests in Greece and assisting rainforest park managers in Costa Rica.

My primary interest lies in transforming our food systems to nurture both people and biodiversity. To gain insight into effective interventions, I interned with FareShare UK – a charity tackling food poverty through the redistribution of surplus food – and pursued extra training in food systems analysis and ecological economics. Embracing a holistic mindset, I am dedicated to promoting equitable nature-based solutions for social and environmental wellbeing.
