Research Interests:

I have a background in ecology and conservation that was developed through an integrated Master's degree in Biosciences at Durham University. My current research focuses upon conservation technology. I am aiming to combine non-invasive passive data collection methods to improve population monitoring of large African carnivores. I am working on novel AI and machine learning solutions for bioacoustics in addition to population modelling to produce accurate spatial density estimates.

I am co-supervised by the University of Oxford and I am also collaborating with NGO Lion Landscapes, Woburn Safari Park, Longleat Safari Park and researchers at the Royal Veterinary College, London.
