I first came to the University of Leeds to study biology as an undergraduate in 2018.

Through this, and a placement year I conducted with the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (2020-2021), my interests have become increasingly aligned with the issue of nature recovery.

Research interests

My research interests relate to landscape-scale restoration of the UK uplands. In particular, I will be assessing the success of previous schemes by monitoring the delivery of public goods, including carbon, water and biodiversity.

This will involve a variety of data collection methods (in-field and remote) to comprehensively evaluate scheme-success.
