Personal profile


My specialism is in mammal conservation and wildlife rehabilitation. My undergraduate training led to my passion for British wildlife and I got involved in mammal research projects from dormouse and bat surveying to The Mammal Society's University Challenge. I spent five years working in wildlife rescue and rehabilitation during which time I became the casualty manager at a large UK rehabilitation centre. Subsequently, I returned to higher education to complete a Master's in Research based on mammal detection methods before joining the academic team at Hartpury. I lectured in Animal Science before moving into working on animal science research projects. 

Research interests

My primary research interests centre on wildlife behavioural ecology and mammal conservation, with a focus on British species. My undergraduate research was based on the European hedgehog, investigating the impact of the climate on nesting behaviour. This led to further research during my MRes when I explored mammal survey methods and investigated the use of a conservation detection dog to locate nesting hedgehogs across both summer and winter.

I also have a research interest in the impact of anthropogenic activity on wildlife, and wildlife rehabilitation practices.
