My focus was on the ecology that could be affected by the planned development and how risks and impacts were communicated to different stakeholders.

I worked with Science Uncovered magazine covering the Cheltenham Science Festival, I also had articles published in the UWE University newspaper and a double page feature article in the Western Mail (Wales) newspaper.
