I am a programme officer with TRAFFIC, the wildlife trade monitoring network, focusing on the trade in medicinal and aromatic plants. In this role also, I act as executive officer of the FairWild Foundation Secretariat, a standard-setting initiative supported by TRAFFIC. In previous roles, I worked for the World Bank on biodiversity conservation projects in the East Asia region, carried out work placements with conservation NGOs in Indonesia and Belize, and worked with Kew Gardens’ sustainable uses group. I have a bachelor's degree in biology, and a master's degree in nature, society, and environmental policy.
