Biography Plus

With a background in conservation genetics, I have worked across Kew on both plant research and on facilitating access to its scientific resources. From October 2016, my role has been to coordinate Kew’s activities under the Plant Assessment Unit Project. An important question for conservation is understanding which plants are threatened, and whether their conservation status is changing. The conservation assessment team in which I work uses Kew’s wide resources to generate conservation assessments that will help answer these questions.
