For my PhD I am investigating species traits, interactions, and ecosystem services of novel dung beetle communities in New Zealand pastures. I am passionate about scientific research and teaching. As a former outreach student from East London, I am a strong advocate for equality in education (gender, ethnic diversity, LGBTQ) and learning. In my spare time I enjoy being in nature and hiking, as well as cooking and playing the violin!
