I am a budding conservationist with a focus in human-primate conflict. I started with a BA in English with Philosophy at the University of Exeter, before moving onto an MSc in Cognitive Evolutionary Anthropology at the University of Oxford, under the supervision of Dr Susana Carvalho. My dissertation, for which I was awarded the Dr Nicola Knight Prize for Quantitative Methods, focused on the origins of cooperation, investigating the effects of predation pressure, resource distribution and habitat fragmentation on prosociality in extant primates. In 2017, I participated in a National Geographic ScienceTelling Bootcamp, in Gorongosa National Park, where I researched human-baboon interactions (see blog post). My interdisciplinary background allows me to take an innovative approach to human-wildlife conflict, analysing human perspectives just as much as animal ecology. I have conducted research in various national parks in Africa, from Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique,to Comoé National Park, Ivory Coast.
