I'm a 24-year-old, first year, PhD student at Cambridge University on the Artificial Intelligence For Environmental Risk (AI4ER) programme and an affiliated researcher on the ERC funded Smart Forests Project.

My PhD research takes an interdisciplinary approach, combining machine learning, bioacoustics, forest ecology, indigenous knowledge and sociology to investigate the role of technology in forest conservation. I was awarded a Knowledge Exchange grant for this work by the Cambridge Conservation Initiative for its originality and potential for change within the conservation field.
