I gained my PhD from Imperial College London in the Conservation Science Group in 2012. I subsequently worked on community based natural resource management and enterprise projects in West Africa with the NGO Bioclimate. I then became a post-doctoral researcher at UCL working on the ESRC-DFID funded project 'Measuring Complex Conservation Interventions' (MCCoI) in collaboration with the Wildlife Conservation Society and Imperial College. I joined UCL Anthropology as a Lecturer in 2015.

Research Summary

My research broadly concerns the cultural, institutional and livelihood dimensions of human-environment relationships. I study how conservation and development processes impact upon these relationships, with implications for both justice and sustainability. I am particularly interested in pastoralist and agro-pastoralist systems and their changing governance. My doctoral research was on the Tibetan Plateau where I explored religion and the environment in the context of Chinese state policies and transformations of the rural economy. More recently, I've conducted field work on the rangelands of Tanzania to study the impacts of payment based conservation projects on human wellbeing, in particular gendered experiences. I draw upon approaches from natural science and social anthropology and like to promote interdisciplinary research in studies of sustainability.
