I take the opportunity to discuss and take action against racial inequalities and ethnic disparities
PhD Zoology student at Quadram Institute Biosciences, University of East Anglia
Chickens have been my passion since I first got an incubator at the start of high school. Starting my PhD with poultry felt like destiny but they are not my only focus. I am an all-round animal lover!
I am passionate about the One Health initiative, leading to my publications in comparative oncology. I additionally volunteer to monitor the local native animal population in the Norfolk fenlands.
As well as my studies and volunteering, I independently research, script and host Nature+Nonsense, a weekly live two-hour radio show on More Muzic Radio, focused on sharing wildlife and environment news, community opportunities and conservation successes from around the world.
I always say, “be the change you want to see” and the REED Ecological Network allows me to do just that. I feel empowered and seen.
As Vice Chair of the REED Ecological Network, I take the opportunity to discuss and take action against the racial inequalities and ethnic disparities within natural science and agriculture using various platforms, including podcasts and webcast interviews.
