I work within the Plant Assessment Unit, assessing the extinction risk of plants using IUCN categories and criteria. Kew's extensive herbarium and literature collections underpin our work and are used along with GIS analysis and collaboration with other scientists at Kew to evaluate a species conservation status. My work has so far been varied, covering a range of species from across the globe, including Colombia, New Guinea and Zambia.
