I'm a post-doctoral graduate of the University of the West of England (UWE), with a BSc (Hons) in Biological Sciences, an MSc in Advanced Wildlife Conservation in Practice, and a Ph.D. investigating the integration of drones into conservation organisations. I hold an A2 CofC drone qualification and am a student member of the CIEEM, with a plan to upgrade to a full member within the year.
I have experience in both field-based and drone-based surveys, including Phase 1, NVC Surveys, and condition assessments, as well as topographical surveys, scrub cover assessments, livestock tracking, and water level quantification. I am also trained in deep learning techniques and have developed deep learning packages, including one to quantify water extent on wetland sites.
I have worked with a number of groups, including the UK Wolf Conservation Trust, the Conservation Planning Specialist Group, and the Wildlife Trusts. I am experienced in managing conservation projects, including the creation and implementation of conservation action plans. I am also skilled in the use of GIS software. I also lecture to university students and other organisations on a regular basis.
I am based in Bristol, and have a full UK driving licence.
