I have had a passion for all things crocodilian ever since I learned the devastating fate of my first love, the dinosaurs. My dream to work with these captivating predators was finally realised in 2013 when I travelled to Peru to conduct research for my final year undergraduate project.
In association with Operation Wallacea, my research investigated possible niche partitioning in the three endemic caiman species. Nocturnal caiman surveys, swarms of mosquitos, boisterous river dolphins, and raucous macaws reaffirmed my passion for field ecology and research.
Following on from this experience I spent three months in the Mojave desert, California State, as part of a research team examining predator-prey interactions between sidewinder rattlesnakes and kangaroo rats.
My other travels have brought me to South Africa, where I volunteered in a Big Cat conservation park, down under to Australia, and inter-railing across Europe. My other interests include, photography, reading and film.
