About me

I am a behavioural ecologist conservation biologist. My work aims to understand the drivers and consequences of environmental change in Equatorial Africa. I have field sites in Bioko Island and Monte Alén National Park – both in Equatorial Guinea (Central Africa), and in the Udzungwa Mountains of Tanzania. My research is highly collaborative, and I work very closely with other organisations and government officials to translate the result of my studies into effective conservation policy.

I hold a BSc (Licenciatura) in Zoology from Universidad de Alcalá (Spain), and a Ph.D. and MSc in Biological Anthropology and Conservation from Stony Brook University, New York (USA). I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy since 2017.
