My name is Madi and I'm a behavioural ecologist and science communicator from South Wales, UK.
My passion and curiosity for the natural world has lead me to document wildlife and conduct research all over the world. From filming African Elephants in Kenya, to working alongside Nat Geo and BBC filmmakers documenting the largest animal on the planet - the Blue Whale. I am a public speaker for The Wildlife Trusts and an Environmental Engagement Officer for my local council.
My scientific background is varied, from food sharing and begging behaviours in Otters, alliance and communication behaviours in Bottlenose Dolphins and the Plains Zebra, to Wolbachia prevalence in Drosophila.
I am a conservationist and passionate science communicator, with a fierce dive to promote and bridge the gap between the general public and academia!
You can see more of my affiliations and work on my Media page.
My passion for the natural world has always been immense. It drives all of my choices and experiences in life, I just can't get enough of it.
