mammal species in Samburu National Reserve and worked on improving the database of individually monitored elephants. This gave me my first taste of working with elephants and really ignited by enthusiasm.

The proximity of Sheffield to the Peak District means plenty of walks in the countryside.
passion of mine is travelling, especially to Brazil. As well as
embracing Brazilian food such as feijoada (black bean stew) and learning Portuguese, I have come to love
telenovelas (Brazilian soaps).
I also enjoy going to the theatre, cooking and finding depictions of elephants wherever I go.
