PhD candidate, School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, The University of Queensland

I am currently working on my PhD in conservation science at the University of Queensland in Australia. My research involves a diverse range of topics including conservation planning, cumulative threat mapping, wilderness conservation, world heritage conservation, and the illegal wildlife trade amongst others. I also collaborate with NGO partners to make sure my research is applied to on-the-ground conservation challenges. Right now I'm working with The Wildlife Conservation Society in Mozambique to develop a management plan for the Niassa National Reserve, as well as working with the Nature Conservancy in Papua New Guinea on conservation plans for New Britain Island. Previously I worked for the African Conservation Centre in Kenya Working on conserving big carnivores on community land. To see my recent publications visit
