I completed my BSc in Zoology at University College London, and went on to complete my MSc in Global Wildlife Health and Conservation at the University of Bristol in 2017. For my MSc dissertation, I studied spatial patterns of primate electrocutions along power lines in the Kenyan town of Diani, with the results informing a mitigation strategy.
After my MSc I worked with the IUCN SSC Pangolin Specialist Group, based at ZSL. During this time I was involved with conservation planning for the Philippine pangolin, IUCN Red Listing, developing a pangolin species ID guide, and supporting communications.
I joined WildCRU in 2018 to work on the Wytham Bat Project. My current research investigates spatial and social structure of Natterer’s bats (Myotis nattereri) in Wytham Woods. Specifically I am focusing on roost composition and spatial patterns of sexual segregation, with a focus on male roosting patterns.
