About me

I am currently working on my dissertation for a Masters in Ecosystem Services at the University of Edinburgh. My focus is on how institutions working on conservation and development projects can facilitate innovation through collaboration, particularly during the project design phase. I am working in partnership with LTS International as part of their support to the Darwin Initiative, a UK government funding scheme for biodiversity conservation in developing countries.

Prior to coming to Edinburgh, I worked with rural communities in Kenya, Zambia and Nicaragua to design and implement community training programmes in agriculture for income generation, ecological sustainability, and health and nutrition.
