Biography

I grew up in Salisbury, Wiltshire and completed my Environmental Science (BSc) undergraduate degree at the University of Nottingham. My third-year research project at the University of Nottingham was focused on how varying widths/vegetation qualities of riparian buffer strips (a common management strategy in tropical agricultural systems) impacted Odonata communities in Bornean oil palm systems. 

I have always been passionate about wildlife and have wanted to aid conservation efforts across the world in any way possible. In 2021, I volunteered as a research assistant for Operation Wallacea at the Knepp Estate, helping several research collect data on the rewilding project. In my spare time, I am a keen wildlife photographer, footballer, and artist. 

Research

I am now undertaking an MPhil in Zoology here at the University of Cambridge. This MPhil, focused on assessing the differences in biodiversity and functioning of insects across Liberian land-use systems, is therefore an exciting opportunity for me to continue on the topic of tropical agriculture and its impacts on insect communities.
