I'm a social psychologist and animal behaviourist.
I work in the field of lion conservation, and was the Director of Research for a lion conservation trust based in Zambia and Zimbabwe for six years.
I am interested in conservation and lion reintroduction, and how social psychological models and concepts could be applied to this field.
I have published papers on conservation, reintroduction programmes, and identity.
In 2016 I was elected onto the African Lion Working Group, representing the social sciences within the field of lion conservation.
I aim to continue championing the role of social sciences in conservation work, boradening the discipline to address this real-world problem, and apply theory and method to the study of human-animal relations and interactions.
