I have been working on research projects involving Critically Endangered mammals on Madagascar and Comoros since 2013. Over the past years I worked in academic and NGO settings studying the behaviour of lemurs and flying foxes. My main research focus has been to understand the social and spatial ecology of these animals and translate the results into applied conservation actions. Besides highlighting the importance of working with communities, I believe that understanding animal behaviour is a key component for successful conservation management.
In my efforts to make science more accessible and diverse I am currently acting as a mentor for students and early career researchers from Madagascar and always happy to collaborate and provide support. In 2020 I started a workshop series on funding for science and conservation projects, targeted at students who may otherwise not have access to this information.
In my free time, when I’m not out looking for owls or bats, I’m creating art.
