I am an ecologist and conservation scientist currently working as a postdoctoral researcher with Gabon’s National Park Agency (Agence National des Parcs Nationaux).
I gained my PhD in 2018, which formed part of the Woodland Creation and Ecological Networks (WrEN) research project at the University of Stirling, and was funded by the Natural Environment Research Council through the IAPETUS Doctoral Training Partnership, with CASE funding from Forest Research.
Previously I worked in Cameroon, where I became interested in the effects of the bushmeat trade on birds and I continue to research this topic in collaboration with the Ebo Forest Research Project. A summary of my most recent work, which was funded by the Rufford Foundation, is available here. You can also read more in this interview I did for the africanraptors.org website.
Studying forest birds is hard because it’s usually easier to hear them than see them. Because of this I’m also interested in bioacoustic research and technology, and have been collaborating on the development of the Solo system. I’m also interested in mathematical modelling and data analysis using R.
