Conservation Social Scientist, Conservation Science

Background

My research has been focused on the problem of how to effectively change human behaviour, especially in the context of tropical forest resource use, bushmeat hunting and primate conservation.

At the RSPB I work on developing solutions to the problem of forest loss and degradation in community-managed forests as part of a project in the Gola Forest, Sierra Leone. I'm specifically looking at how conservation actions can support improved food security and livelihoods for forest edge communities.
