I studied ecology and philosophy (BSC) at the University of Victoria, Wellington, and 2018 I completed a MA degree in Political, Legal and Economic Philosophy at the University of Bern. Now I am combining my interests in ethics and the natural world by looking at ethical principles for wildlife conservation, which will constitute the topic of my PhD research at the University of Fribourg Environmental Sciences and Humanities Institute. In particular I am interested in how issues of animal welfare should be considered by those wanting to manage wild populations.
