I am a conservation scientist with a doctorate in Biological Anthropology from the University of Cambridge. I aspire to bridge the science-policy-society interface. As a wildlife scientist, I am interested in how wild animals adapt behaviorally to human-modified landscapes. As a practitioner I focus on ways of improving human-wildlife coexistence, informing policy decisions with evidence, and raising inclusivity and diversity in conservation. Previously, I was a 2016-2017 AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellow, a Junior Research Fellow in Evolutionary Anthropology at Durham University, and a postdoc and lecturer in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University. I have consulted for a range of NGOs including the Wildlife Conservation Society, WildAid, the Environmental Investigation Agency, and the Tanzania Forest Conservation Group. I am one of the founders of Gage, a global online directory of women and gender diverse experts in STEMM.
