About

Thanks for visiting!

I am a British-Swiss primatologist who specialises in small ape decline in China, Vietnam and Myanmar. I am currently studying towards a part-time doctorate degree at University College London with additional supervisors from ZSL's Institute of Zoology, Sun Yat-Sen University in China, Oxford Brookes University, and the IUCN Small Ape Specialist group.

 

Alongside my PhD, I work for Bristol Zoological Society as a part-time Higher Education Conservation Lecturer

 

I have more than 15 years' worth of experience working in the field of wild primate behaviour and implications for conservation. Throughout this period I have held various field-based research, management and teaching positions for a number of respectable organisations. The majority of my research has focused on Asian primates, with the exception of lemurs in Madagascar.

 

I regularly contribute to outreach events. In my spare time, I am a keen photographer and write children's books to support conservation efforts and raise important awareness about threatened species.
