I am interested in research that explores the impact of anthropogenic environments on animal behaviour with an emphasis on developing evidence based solutions to minimise them and to reduce human-wildlife conflict.

I graduated from the University of Sussex in 2011 before going on to do my MSc in Evolutionary and Behavioural Ecology at the University of Exeter where I am now a NERC funded PhD researcher within the Mammalian Biology  group headed by my supervisor Dr. Fiona Mathews.

During the course of my studies I have developed field and lab based skills and had the opportunity to take field courses in Ecuador and Kenya. I attend conferences and meetings at the Royal Society, Zoological Society of London, the British Ecological Society as well as internal and visiting lectures at the University of Exeter.

My PhD combines my two passions: animal behaviour and conservation; and will explore the impacts of habitat fragmentation on British bats.

I am a member of The Mammal Society, The British Ecological Society and the Bat Conservation Trust.
