Mali Elephant Project
I currently direct the Mali Elephant Project, having worked on a variety of nature conservation projects in Africa, Asia and Europe, and as a research officer at the Green College Centre for Environmental Policy & Understanding. I am particularly interested in using systems perspectives and collaborative approaches to understand the human-nature relationship and find sustainable solutions to conservation problems. I am a Research Associate of the Department of Zoology, Oxford University, and have co-authored a recently published book on "Conservation" for Cambridge University Press, that takes a global perspective to bring conservation to the heart of sustainability and environmental policy.
