Research Interests

For my doctoral work I will be conducting research on effective, and repeatable, methods of changing consumer demand for wildlife products in Southeast Asia. More specifically, I will be collaborating with conservation practitioners to implement an evidence-based approach to a wildlife trade campaign in a way that has never before been done in conservation, but is the upheld standard in public health interventions. Through this endeavour, we hope to maximize the effectiveness of future demand reduction efforts, and set a precedent for imbuing academic rigor into on-the-ground expertise.

This research is part of the Oxford Martin School Programme on Illegal Wildlife Trade.
