Her background is in ecology and conservation, having completed a PhD in genetics of tropical invasive species in 2008. She is PI on a long-term research project characterising the terrestrial and marine biodiversity of a tropical forested Caribbean island, Dominica, in partnership with the NGO Operation Wallacea and the Dominican Government.
