I’m an interdisciplinary conservation researcher with an interest in social-ecological systems, interdisciplinary approaches to conservation, debates surrounding sustainable development and the role of different knowledges in conservation research and management. I have 10 years of research experience in tropical peatland ecology, livelihoods and conservation.
I recently joined the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust as a Principal Research Officer for their Ecosystem Health and Social Dimensions team.
My interdisciplinary PhD explored peat-swamp fish and the importance of fish(ing) to human communities in the Sebangau (Central Kalimantan, Indonesia) using Assemblage Theory as a framework. This also involved completing, with Dudin and our ‘fish team’, some of the first long-term fish and water quality surveys in the Sebangau River and Forest. You can find a more detailed outline of my thesis here.
