I completed my Biological Sciences undergratuate degree at Oxford University where I went on to study for an MSc Biodiveristy Conservation and Management.

I started at Cambridge University in 2012 as a doctoral training programme student funded by the Biotechnology and BioSciences Research Council (BBSRC). During my first year at Cambridge I completed several short projects, contributing towards an MRes, working with the Evolution and Development Group, Plant Sciences Department and the National Institute of Agricultural Botany(NIAB). I joined the Conservation Science Group in 2013 to start my PhD supervised by Bill Sutherland and Lynn Dicks.
