Dr Noémie Bonnin

School of Biological and Environmental Sciences

I am currently a spatial analyst at LJMU's Natural Capital Hub, where I contribute to various projects focusing on mapping and measuring natural capital and ecosystem services in the UK. Engaging in collaborations with local and national government bodies and environmental charities, our work includes evaluating major national-level programs like Nature for Climate.

Prior to this, my research was centered on developing various methods to help protect chimpanzees in Tanzania. I conducted population surveys, explored the use of drones for nest detection, performed population and landscape genetic analyses, and developed habitat suitability and connectivity models using satellite imagery.

In addition to my work in natural capital and chimpanzee conservation, I have expanded my expertise through training in agroecological consulting. This experience deepened my understanding of environmental issues and provided insights into the challenges faced by farmers in adopting sustainable practices.
