I received my BSc in Biological Sciences from the University of Exeter in 2018. During this time I completed a professional placement with the Wild Planet Trust and undertook a range of research projects. These included a study of the dietary ecology of meadow pipits and the meta-barcoding of microbial communities inhabiting fish in Bangladeshi aquaculture. I am passionate about the conservation of UK native species, especially mammals and birds. I have a particular interest in using pure questions in behavioural & evolutionary ecology to inform conservation.​

My PhD is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council as part of the GW4+ Doctoral Training Partnership. My research will use a combination of molecular and social network approaches to understand patterns of association between greater horseshoe bats (Rhinolophus ferrumequinum) in hibernation.
