I graduated from the University of Sussex in 2019 with a Distinction in Global Biodiversity Conservation ( MSc). My Masters thesis investigated the temporal interactions between felid predators and their prey within the Chocoan rainforest in Ecuador. My research interests are in rainforest ecology and conservation, especially in the Amazon rainforest.
This interest began during my undergraduate degree where I studied Geography (BSc) at the University of Brighton. I volunteered for Operation Wallacea and studied birds on a remote archipelago in Indonesia which began my passion for field research.
From 2017-2018 I worked at a remote field station within the Madre de Dios region of Peru, teaching students about rainforest ecology and research methods. Here I was able to learn from other researchers and conducted research on birds, mammals and invertebrates. This has given me the drive to continue in the field of research and contribute to the scientific knowledge on the anthropogenic impacts on vertebrate and invertebrate communities.
