Biography

I am an African environmental scientist involved in interdisciplinary research on human-nature relations. I recently completed my PhD on the reliability and conservation value of ranger-collected data on elephant poaching. I am now a postdoctoral fellow funded by the Oxford Policy Engagement Network and translating my PhD findings into policy recommendations for protected area management and anti-poaching in Zimbabwe. I love data and statistics and have experience using statistical and geospatial modelling methods to understand human-nature interactions across time and space better. I have previously worked on the human-carnivore conflict in Zimbabwe, elephant population dynamics in South Africa, links between wildlife trade and COVID-19, and conservation education. My trajectory has become more interdisciplinary during and since my PhD. I have learnt that diverse methods (from interviews to mathematics) are essential for understanding complex human-nature systems and generating useful knowledge for conservation practitioners. I have also taught and supervised students in various statistical and environmental topics (mostly at the University of Oxford).
