Dr Heather Gilbert

African Research Manager

Heather has been working in conservation biology ever since she ran away to a Costa Rican jungle following the completion of her PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Nottingham in 2013. During this time Heather has worked on a variety of different biodiversity projects around the world, leading student groups to research birds, jaguars, monkeys and elephants – depending on the location! Recently, Heather has focussed her research on large mammal behaviour and ecology, and so now oversees the research and logistics of the African projects.
