Student Profile(s)

Sam Leslie

After completing my MSc at DICE, I moved to Cambodia to work as an intern for Fauna and Flora International to support the country's only MSc programme in biodiversity conservation. Using skills I learnt at DICE, I assisted students in designing their thesis research, analyzing results and polishing their final submissions as well as teaching two modules. Through this work I was able to build a strong network and have been working as an independent consultant in Cambodia and Bhutan on a range of exciting topics including livelihood surveys, ecotourism and human wildlife conflict compensation.
