Researcher at CABI

I am an invasive weed management researcher at the Centre for Agriculture and Bioscience International (CABI).

Last year I completed a Masters of Research in Biodiversity, Evolution and Conservation at University College London. During this time I completed two research projects, one at the Zoological Society of London and the other with the Centre for Biodiversity and Environment Research (CBER).

This year I raised $20,000, through three successful grants for the implementation of a primate and community-based research project with the Obudu Conservation Centre, Nigeria.

I’ve been a member of the REED Ecological Network since (almost) the beginning. I am passionate about increasing representation and opportunities for BAME ecologists and was eager to meet other individuals, like me, navigating their way through a field lacking in diversity.

The REED Ecological Network has provided me with amazing opportunities, including the opportunity to co-present a talk about small grants and write articles for The Niche magazine. In the future I hope to further develop my research skills through an integrated socio-ecological PhD.

As treasurer my role involves managing the Network’s finances and fundraising efforts. If your organisation is interested in sponsoring the Network and any of our activities then please get in touch.’
