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

During my PhD I worked 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.

I now work at UNEP-WCMC, a charity that "works with scientists and policy makers worldwide to place biodiversity at the heart of environment and development decision-making".
