Research Interests

My research interests are multi-disciplinary, covering both biology and geography. Primarily, I am interested in species conservation and the importance of maintaining high levels of biodiversity in relation to climate change. I am also passionate about the power and reach of science and the importance of engaging local communities with scientific developments. My DPhil project, supervised by Professor Nathalie Seddon, will explore the biodiversity outcomes of Nature-based Solutions (NbS), and how these can be used in conjunction with other NbS developments to help in the ever-developing field of climate change adaptation and mitigation. The impact will hopefully be wide-reaching, with influences primarily in remote communities that rely more on natural resources than those in the westernised world.


After completing my undergraduate degree in Biology at University of Nottingham in 2020, I spent a year gaining experience alongside the London Wildlife Trust, RSPB and RSPCA. Please contact me if you have any questions or queries about my DPhil project, career path (so far) or anything else!
