Biography

I am an environmental scientist interested in influencing socially-responsible, long-term conservation change particularly in the African tropics. I trained as a conservation biologist and have extensive field-based experience working on a wide variety of ecological and social projects in the developing world. Some highlights include the development and implementation of a chimpanzee census, working on a three year EU FP7 project examining the ability of a payments for ecosystem services project to achieve conservation and development goals, conducting an audit for a REDD+, FSC community-managed forest in Tanzania, and managing a primate sanctuary in Nigeria.

My current work is based in the country of Tanzania and involves two research projects – Conservation, Markets and Justice, an ESRC-funded project examining conceptions of environmental justice in forest management and an ESPA early careers fellowship examining the influence of community-based forestry on human wellbeing and ecosystem services.

I am interested in environmental and social impact evaluation in particular at the interface of subsistence or forest-based communities and protected areas. I am equally interested in work that considers local conceptions of justice in light of the implementation and wider acceptance of market-based mechanisms within conservation.
