I am part of the Millennium Seed Bank Partnership (MSBP) in Madagascar at the Kew Madagascar Conservation Centre (KMCC), identifying and conserving the most threatened plant species of Madagascar.

Our aim is to build an effective network of seed banks in Madagascar and to compile and disseminate the information needed for ecological restoration of all major vegetation types.
I have experience in plant inventory and plant determination, and have made over 1015 plant collections in the dry forest of Madagascar. 
I also have skills in plant red listing 
I graduated in Systematics and sustainable use of plant diversity specializing in “Ethnobotanical, biological and ecological inventories and characterizations of Tacca species (DIOSCOREACEAE) in the Menabe and Sofia regions.”

I have basic digital photography skills
