About

I am a scientist enthusiastic about widlife health and biodiversity conservation. Trained as a veterinarian, I have worked as a teaching assistant and clinician across university and non-profit sectors in Australia, Germany, and Spain. My current research focus is on sea turtle physiology and field-based health assessment methods. I have also experience in coordinating multidisciplinary project partners, linking conservation aspects with wildlife health.
