About me

Amanda is an Anthropologist with expertise in working with local communities, often at sites of conservation interest, i.e. in Uganda and Madagascar.  Through the use of interdisciplinary and qualitative approaches, she seeks to find a voice for local people; trying to understand their perceptions of their environment and the risks and challenges that they face.

Amanda completed her MSc and PhD at Oxford Brookes University before teaching there and at University of Bristol.  She then spent 8 years at Bristol Zoological Society.  During this time she managed the HE provision with multiple University partners in addition to module leading on MSc Communication for Conservation (UWE) and many undergraduate courses.  She was also co-lead of the Northern Madagascar project.

 Amanda is currently a Research Fellow on the VIP-CLEAR project (Centre for Water, Communities and Resilience) which is capturing the voices of disadvantaged children during the pandemic.
