Lauren Moore


PhD Researcher

Lauren completed her Master’s degree at the University of Oxford and is now a doctoral researcher at Nottingham Trent University.

Sarah Raymond


PhD Researcher

Sarah is a NERC GW4+ funded doctoral researcher with Project Splatter and based at Cardiff University. She completed her MSci Biology degree at University of Nottingham. Her research is focusing on assessing how road mitigation affects animal behaviour and mortality, and how it could be used to aid conservation efforts. She is a wildlife enthusiast, birder and trainee bird ringer.

Anya Griffiths


Placement Student

Anya is an Undergraduate Biology student from the University of Manchester on a placement year with Project Splatter. Anya is particularly interested in science communication and the interaction between science and the media. She intends to use her placement year to better understand the general public’s relationship with conservation issues and the depiction of them in the media.
