PhD Title
The role that the public have to play in environmental conservation planning and priority setting

The objective of Jessica’s PhD is to explore the role that the public have to play in conservation planning and priority setting.

Jessica is from Kenya, and has a background in GIS modelling, conservation planning and priority setting. Jessica conducted her undergraduate at UCL and in 2009 obtained a Masters in Conservation Science sponsored by Panthera, at UCL’s department of Geography. In the interim Jessica helped found the worlds larges wild cat not-for-profit and has recently worked for a leading political risk firm and a large-scale initiative to address the illegal trade in ivory.

Her research interests include landscape planning, wildlife camera trapping, flagship species for priority setting, and motivations for engaging in citizen science, environmental management and the use of crowdsourcing both as a scientific analysis technique and as an engagement tool.
