Composé d'experts du monde entier, le Groupe de spécialistes de la girafe et de l'okapi de la CSE de l'UICN (GOSG) dirige les efforts d'étude de la girafe, de l'okapi et des menaces auxquelles ils sont confrontés, ainsi que les actions de conservation destinées à assurer la survie des deux espèces dans l'avenir. La Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF) et la Zoological Society of London (ZSL) sont les co-organisateurs institutionnels du GOSG pour les girafes et les okapis respectivement.

I am a conservation ecologist interested in developing applied solutions to conservation challenges rooted in scientific understandings of population ecology and movement ecology.  Examining these processes through the lens of spatial interactions over time, I hope to better understand how individuals and populations respond to changing environments - from seasonal variation in resource distribution to large scale human-driven disturbances- and exploring how an understanding of these interactions across spatiotemporal scales might be used to craft creative and meaningful conservation strategy.

I am committed to translating scientific findings into meaningful conservation strategy. As such, I work collaboratively with conservation organizations, government agencies and academic institutions to better understand and implement solutions to contemporary issues in biodiversity conservation. Conservation solutions are rooted in trust and understanding across cultural and political divides so I strive to integrate diverse perspectives of thinking and doing in collaborative conservation initiatives.

I am an evolutionary geneticist interested in understanding how natural and anthropogenic processes are involved in biodiversity change.

I did my PhD on okapi conservation genetic, and am currently a lecturer at Cardiff University, UK. My research investigates diversity in wild animal populations, often using historic and ancient DNA.
