Gates Cambridge Scholar, PhD, Affiliated Research Scholar at the University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute, University of Cambridge

I am a Gates Cambridge Scholar and affiliated research scholar at the University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute.

Prior to my research at Cambridge, I worked in the specialty coffee industry for six years, where I raised over $4.4 million and directed projects for livelihood improvement and conservation programs with coffee producers in 11 countries. These projects were featured in the Clinton Global Initiative, National Geographic's Wild Chronicles television series, and the Stanford Social Innovation Review.
