Alix is an MRes Wildlife Conservation student within the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Southampton.

I graduated from the University of Exeter in 2019 with a BSc (Hons) Zoology.

My postgraduate research will focus on evaluating the policy and practice of transboundary conservation.

Research interests

My interests have focused on the international nature of conservation, human-wildlife conflict and the management of wildlife in an urban and fragmented world. I have field experience in Cornwall, South Africa and the Galapagos working with bumblebees to crocodiles. My undergraduate dissertation investigated the heritabilty of body shape traits in Trinidadian Guppies using a quantitative genetics approach. I have also produced a blog series for the Galapagos Conservation Trust.

I chose to study MRes Wildlife Conservation to expand my knowledge basis on a range of conservation topics and gain valuable research experience with two leading insitutions, Marwell Zoo and the University of Southampton. I believe this course will bridge me past experience and future research ambitions.

My amibtion is to progress into a career in conservation, developing from my postgraduate research area.
