The David Attenborough Building
I work at BirdLife International managing projects that focus on agriculture, biodiversity and livelihoods. I am Project Leader for a Darwin-funded project examining the sustainability of Shea production in West Africa and I manage a project on shade-grown Yerbe Maté in Paraguay. I am interested in how we can make our farming systems more environmentally and socially sustainable.
I have recently completed a position based within the Conservation Science group at Cambridge University. Whilst there I worked on a project to map and assess the distribution of eco-certification schemes for tropical crops.
Previously I was based at Lund University, where my work focused on identifying the impacts of climate change on birds. I’m interested in combining community and individual approaches to gain perspective on climate change mechanisms.
At the British Trust for Ornithology, I worked on the evaluation of agri-environment schemes in England, determining their efficacy for the delivery of farmland bird conservation targets.
