I have worked in the conservation sector as a volunteer and professionally for most of my life. I have a PhD from University of Oxford on "Biodiversity Indicators and Conservation Priorities" as well as MSc from Birkbeck College and Imperial College. I have spent extensive periods of time in the field carrying out research in the tropics.
Skills and experience
- Institution: Bat Conservation Trust
- Current position: Director of Communications and Fundraising
I have been involved with many different conservation projects throughout my career. While working for Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust I worked in Dominican Republic to study and conserve one of the few venomous mammals in the world - the HIspaniolan solenodon. My PhD had a large focus on Dung Beetles and the research on them continues now in collaboration with Oxford University Museum of Natural History. My current job focuses on raising awareness and understanding of bats.
