Studying at the University of Southampton led me to discover a passion for ecology and I have since aspired to pursue a scientific career.

I am particularly interested in the interface between food security and biodiversity conservation.

A love of fieldwork and the environment has resulted in a variety of research opportunities from an undergraduate dissertation studying elephant damage to vegetation in South Africa to pollinators biodiversity research much closer to home.

I have also worked with a local ecological consultancy undertaking bat surveys and volunteered on several outreach projects from Southampton’s BioBlitz to science communication programmes with the British Ecological Society, leading to a PhD with Royal Holloway from 2017.

I am particularly interested in the interface between food security and biodiversity conservation. Analysing and understanding human perceptions of this issue helps aid better decision-making at the policy level for more effective conservation.

In my upcoming PhD I will explore this issue using local ecological knowledge in terms of shifting baselines syndrome.
