I’m an ecologist and conservation biologist. I have a Lecturer position at Liverpool John Moores University in the United Kingdom, and an Honorary Fellowship at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa.
I grew up in Zimbabwe, and studied to MSc level in South Africa. In-between studies I worked in the Zimbabwean conservation field, mostly in the Zambezi Valley and the Lowveld. I then moved over to Australia and was awarded a PhD from the University of Adelaide. That led to a number of prestigious fellowships, including a Marie Curie at Imperial College London (Silwood Park) and a Carnegie Fellowship at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa.
In all that time I was privileged to be mentored by world-leading scientists, and subsequently published in top journals, including Nature, PNAS and Ecology Letters. I was further awarded a formal ‘Rating’ by the South African National Research Foundation, and I am on the Editorial Board for the ISI-listed African Journal of Wildlife Research.
I bring my skills, experience and international network together to better understand how anthropogenic activity impacts (African) wildlife populations – and by doing so – aim to develop informed conservation strategies [that includes people]. Simples!
