About Me

I am a PhD student with the Institute of Zoology at ZSL and the Center for Biodiversity and Environmental Research at UCL. I am part of the London NERC DTP.

My research is on the effect of climate change on African wild dogs, Lycaon pictus, from an individual to species level. I use long term data on the species to model temperature impacts ranging from behaviour and mortality to population level effects, working towards a spatially explicit species wide model.

I have a keen interest in policy, particularly science and environmental policy. I previously worked in the policy and campaigns team at the National Autistic Society and have completed a placement as the BES POST Fellow. I am currently undertaking an RCUK policy placement at the Royal Society, finishing at the end of June.

I regularly engage with Twitter and science media outlets, including appearances in Nature News and Comment, Gizmodo, Washington Post, The Atlantic, Forbes, the Verge, BBC Radio 5 Live, the Times, Your Morning, As It Happens and Buzzfeed.

I have co-authored a science-humour book, ‘Does it fart?’, out on October the 19th.
