Anne is an interdisciplinary conservation scientist who is interested in how people connect to their natural environment and the role of science in supporting that connection. In 2015 she completed her PhD in Human Geography at Lancaster University in the UK, which sought to understand local perceptions of scientific research in the Bolivian Amazon through participatory research with indigenous communities, park guards and biodiversity scientists.
