Tammy E. Davies
University of Victoria
Tammy joined the School of Environmental Studies at University of Victoria in September 2014 after completing her PhD at the University of St Andrews and Institute of Zoology (UK). Her main research interests focus on how an interdisciplinary approach can be used to develop locally specific and sustainable conservation management solutions. Tammy developed an interest in this area after working for a marine conservation NGO in Madagascar and witnessing the conflict between restrictive conservation measures and the food security of local people. Since then, Tammy has been involved in numerous conservation-focused research projects, including her PhD which assessed the relationship between biodiversity and poverty in the context of land use change, in a remote and poorly studied region of the Solomon Islands.
