Eleanor joined the CLP team in December 2023. She is of Irish and Swedish heritage, and grew up in Northern Ireland where she developed her love of the outdoors and nature. Eleanor went on to study a BSc in Ecology and an MA in Environmental History, uncovering a keen interest in human-wildlife conflict, in particular the bat-human relationship. This led her to study bats in Malawi and South Africa, where she also collected data for both her Bachelors and Masters theses. Eleanor’s most recent professional role was working within communications for the Tenure Facility, an organisation located in Stockholm that works with Indigenous Peoples and local communities towards securing their ancestral land rights. Outside of work, Eleanor enjoys organising cultural music events, roller-skating and practising kick-boxing.
