PhD student within the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Environmental Intelligence
My interests lie in the utilisation of technolgy for ecological and conservation practices. Previously, I completed my MBiol (Hons) in Biosciences at Durham University where I analysed acoustic data collected from autonomous recording units. For my PhD, I am now combining multiple remote data capture technologies (specifically camera traps and autonomous recording units) to automatically monitor species populations in African savannah ecosystems, with a particular focus on lions. This will involve extensive fieldwork and desk-based computational work to develop AI models.
I am co-supervised by the Widlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU) at 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.
