PhD Candidate

University of Canterbury

I am currently a PhD candidate at the University of Canterbury, studying Human-Animal Studies under the supervision of Dr. Annie Potts and Dr. Alison Loveridge. My research interests are varied and interdisciplinary, though the bulk of my thesis research thus far is to use a Critical Animal Studies lens to consider how speciesism influences conservation and pest control efforts in Aotearoa New Zealand; ultimately, hoping to consider how compassionate conservation can benefit the animal bodies caught in the crossfire of human ignorance and environmental destruction.
