I graduated in 2012 from the University of Leeds with a BSc (Hons) in Zoology. During this degree, I developed a strong interest in Conservation Science. After graduation this led me to a research assistant post in Kenya, collecting behavioural data concerning primate rehabilitation and release. I then began an MSc in Behavioural and Evolutionary Ecology at the University of Exeter, graduating in 2014. Here my thesis focused on investigating personality in a less neurologically complex species. Specifically looking for the presence of personality and its functional significance, by means of a correlation with success in competition trials.
In September 2015 I began my PhD under the supervision of Dr Marina Davila-Ross, Dr Jerome Micheletta and Professor Kim Bard, combining my interests in Conservation Science with Comparative Psychology. I am currently investigating the application of personality research to rehabilitation and release programmes in orangutans.
