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

I graduated with BSc Geography at the University of Southampton in 2018. My undergraduate dissertation looked at the link between dissolved inorganic nitrogen concentration and the risk of coral reef bleaching using satellite data and spatial analysis.

Research interests

During my masters I will be researching the Grevys Zebra metapopulation. In particular I will be looking where fragmented populations are distributed and how the use the landscape. I will then also be researching how potential changes to climate and human interference in home ranges may impact upon the Grevy’s metapopulation.

I chose to study the MRes Wildlife Conservation course because I was excited by the opportunity of working on a research project that will have tangilbe results that can be used for future conservation efforts. Also the chance to work and learn from practising conservation biologists at Marwell Wildlife is incredible valuable and uniqie to this course.

After this course I hope to continue persuing an interdisciplianry approach to conservation, utilising the skills I’ve learnt over both of my courses at the University of Southampton.
