Postgraduate research student
For the last four years I have been working for Blue Ventures Conservation, a marine conservation organisation dedicated to working with local communities to develop conservation and poverty alleviation initiatives that protect biodiversity and coastal livelihoods. At present, I am the Conservation Programmes Manager, responsible for the coordination of Blue Ventures integrated conservation programmes in Madagascar and Belize. Prior to working at Blue Ventures I studied the artisanal octopus fishery in Madagascar and worked surveying coral reefs in the Philippines.
