Biography

I completed an integrated Master's at the University of Sheffield (2014-18) under Professor David Edwards, focused on  how post-logging interventions can be used to restore multiple values in selectively logged landscapes. My Master's project focused on the effects of vine-cutting and enrichment planting on dung beetle recovery in heavily logged forests in Borneo. I came to Cambridge to further explore the potential for forest restoration to deliver benefits to people and widlife. My project supervisors are Professor Andrew Balmford, and David Edwards (co-supervisor) and I am studying under the Peter Scott Studentship. 

Research

I am interested in how different restoration strategies vary in their abilities to benefit people and wildlife in the highlands of Southern Ethiopia.
