Department of Zoology



I studied at the University of Exeter for my BSc in Conservation Biology and Ecology. My final year research project investigated the relationship between social dominance and foraging behaviour of garden birds at feeding stations. I then went on to do an MSc in Conservation Science at Imperial College London. My master’s research project examined the impact different protected area management categories have on the cost effectiveness and efficiency of spatial prioritizations, using England’s protected area network as a case study. 


I am interested in how we can maximise the return on investment in biodiversity conservation. My PhD at Cambridge aims to develop the metrics and tools for enabling return on investment to be estimated for species conservation and test them on elephants and great apes across Africa
