AUNE Alumna Wins Fellowship for African Research

Nicole Gross-Camp, PhD ’09, a research fellow at the School of International Development in the University of East Anglia, has received a competitive fellowship from Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation (ESPA), an international research organization.

Her research will look at  how community-oriented conservation efforts in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) affect the wellbeing of the local people and their relationship to ecosystem services. Because the DRC houses the largest forest in Africa and the second-largest block of tropical forest in the world, there have been many efforts recently to protect the forest and develop ecosystem services.

Nicole, a tropical ecologist and conservation scientist specializing in the African tropics, has worked in sub-Saharan Africa for fifteen years. She earned an MS in Environmental Studies, with a concentration in Conservation Biology, from AUNE in 2003, and a PhD in Environmental Studies from AUNE in 2009. While at AUNE, she was managing director of AUNE’s Center for Tropical Ecology and Conservation for several years.
