My degree in Zoology gave me the foundations which sparked my curiosity towards the world of conservation. After that I continued with a Masters degree in Ecology, Evolution and Conservation and have worked on multiple projects in developing countries.

I just completed my PhD, working in the Gola forest, on the border between Sierra Leone and Liberia, investigating the effects human hunting pressures have on the behaviour of Diana monkeys and Sooty Mangabeys and issues related to accurately mapping hunting pressure distribution.
