Interests & Responsibilities
Before joining BTO, Faye specialised in nocturnal primates and spent time working and living in remote tropical forests where she studied animals like bushbabies and slow lorises. From this, she developed an interest in communicating scientific discoveries to the people that shared their homes with these animals, and this sparked a career change moving towards science communication rather than research.
From developing information centres in the heart of Borneo to working with school groups on sea turtle conservation, Faye has used her experiences to guide her in her job at BTO, where she started as a Science Communications Manager. This role saw her in charge of BTO News as well as other print and online media, before taking on her new role of Social Media Manager. Now, she is responsible for driving forward our online presence. She strongly believes that social media is a powerful tool to communicate quickly and efficiently with large audiences, allowing us to share our work with the world. Despite her job largely taking place online, she mostly enjoys meeting people face-to-face at our events, and often volunteers for local events and conferences.
