Personal profile

I am currently undertaking a PhD research position at Centre for Quaternary Research, Department of Geography, Royal Holloway, University of London, internally supervised by Professor Danielle Schreve and Dr Sarah Papworth and externally supervised by Professor Jens-Christian Svenning, Aarhus University.

My research is on rewilding with megaherbivores as keystone species with a focus on Elk and Bison and will include time spent in Denmark and other parts of Europe. This project aims to contribute to the fields of conservation palaeobiology, tropic rewilding and large herbivore ecology and will hopefully help underpin any plans for reintroductions in Britain and beyond. 

I have also run a consultancy business for the past six years, advising landowners and managers on their rewilding projects and taking commissions for research and writing, specialising in species reintroductions and large herbivores in rewilding. Additionally I am a wildlife guide at Knepp Wildland in Sussex, England and assist with management of their two Exmoor pony herds.  I Co-Chair the Large Herbivore Working Group - a group of organisations and individuals looking to remove barriers and progress rewilding in Britain. I also sit on Sussex Mammal Group Committee, Sussex Beaver Partnership and the South East England Pine Marten Working Group.
