Bio – I completed my MSc in Conservation and Biodiversity at the University of Exeter’s Cornwall campus. My main thesis looked into the impacts of climate on the breeding success of seabirds using a 40-year data set from Skomer Island in Wales. After graduating I worked as a research assistant for the RSPB, conducting seabird surveys on many of Orkney’s islands in Scotland.

For my PhD I will be looking into how nature restoration projects assess their success. I have opportunities for fieldwork at Attenborough Nature Reserve and Knepp Estate, and to work with partner organisations BGS and Operation Wallacea.
