Course Director MSc Biodiversity, Conservation and Management


  • School of Geography and the Environment

An ecologist by training, I have spent the past fourteen years working in the multidisciplinary field of biodiversity conservation in the pursuit of innovative, equitable and enduring solutions to the global biodiversity crisis. I have worked across international to local scales, collaborating with partners from the private, public and third sectors. This experience has given me a deep appreciation for the necessity of diverse and inclusive approaches to conservation governance.

In my current role as Director of the MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management (BCM) in the School of Geography and the Environment, I lead the design and delivery of a cross-disciplinary program of graduate study that responds to the challenges and opportunities of modern biodiversity conservation and nature recovery.  LCNR is central to BCM’s aims and I work closely with LCNR colleagues to develop MSc teaching and research on nature recovery.

My research and teaching focus on community-led conservation and community science, exploring the critical role indigenous people and local communities people play in conserving biodiversity.
