I was graduated in 2016 with an MSc in Plant and Fungal Taxonomy from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and Queen Mary, University of London. Also hold BSc in Biodiverity and Conservation from Birkbeck, University of London.

I love plants, especially succulents. My MSc dissertation was a research project, entitled "A Phylogenetic Analysis of Madagascar's Unique Aloe L." My BSc dissertation was about The Chestnut Leaf Miner. The ecology of plants and the miniature ecosystems that encompass single plants, especially trees, is of great interest.

Lichens are a curiosity and I'd love to learn more about them especially their ecological importance.

I am interested in entomology, too, in particular psyllids and hover flies.
