Seed Biology and Plant Conservation

My background is in Natural Sciences, with an MSc in Conservation Biology, specialized in Plant Conservation and Seed Ecology. I also studied to obtain the RHS Level 3 Horticulture Certificate.

In 2022 I was assigned a 1-year scholarship with which I spent six months in Mexico to contribute to one of Kew projects in Latin America (SUSS Team based at Wakehurst Place).

I am passionate about ethnobotany, plant ecology, scientific dissemination & environmental education.
I have lived in different countries due to different projects, hence I fluently speak five languages.
