About me

Annalyse is pursuing a PhD in Environmental Policy and Development at LSE, which she began in January 2022.  Her research focuses on the rapidly evolving urban trade in wild meat (bushmeat), with a particular focus on drivers of consumption, shifting consumption behaviours, and perceptions of health risks amongst city-based consumers.  Her work was conceptualized in response to a widespread call to ban the wild meat trade following the outbreak of Covid-19.

Prior to arriving at LSE, Annalyse received a B.S. in Biology from Cornell University and a M.S. in Conservation Science from Imperial College London. Professionally, she has worked as a research assistant at the University of Oxford’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) and for the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED).  She has also worked in various science outreach positions at Cornell University’s Laboratory of Ornithology.
