My academic studies began with an undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Bristol. After graduating in 2018, I left the UK to live in western Canada for a number of years. During this time, I worked in several roles in the British Columbian forests, first as a surveyor, then tree planter, and finally as a grizzly bear guide and naturalist, where I guided guests to view the bears in their natural environment.

Returning to the U.K., my interest in forests led me to undertake an MSc in Environmental Forestry from Bangor University (graduation 2022). As a PhD student in the Envision doctoral training program, my project is titled ‘Restoring for a resilient future, restoration trajectories in the face of multiple stressors’, and focuses around future-proofing our forest restoration efforts in a changing climate.
