After gaining a BSc in Biological Sciences from Durham University followed by a PhD in Ecology, my first post-doctoral appointment was as Fellfield Ecologist for the British Antarctic Survey (BAS).  This post entailed field work on Signy Island off the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula.  After three years at BAS I emigrated to Australia and worked as a biogeographer for the Australian Antarctic Division, travelling to remote parts of the Antarctic Continent with the 50th Australian National Antarctic Research Expedition (ANARE).  Finally, in 1998, I switched my academic focus to Africa and accepted a Research Fellowship in the Centre for African Ecology at the University of the Witwatersrand funded by the South African Foundation for Research Development.  Here I undertook a programme of savanna ecology research in the Kruger National Park.  I have now returned to Britain where I have set up the MSc in Global Wildlife Health and Conservation, a postgraduate programme which provides practical wildlife skills and ecology training for people wanting to pursue careers with conservation agencies, national parks and wildlife charities, both in the U.K. and overseas.
