Annette Green BA, MA

Annette Green BA, MA

PhD Candidate

My academic background is in modern foreign languages and human geography. I developed an academic interest in Tanzania after working for a Tanzanian tour operator for 18 months, and went on to study the discursive framings of conservation and development revealed by debates about the so-called 'Serengeti Highway' for my MA thesis. I am currently studying the concept of the corridor in the areas of both international development and biodiversity conservation.



  • PhD Candidate in Geography, University of Cambridge (2016-present)
  • MA in Tourism, Environment and Development, King's College London (2014-15)
  • BA in German and Italian, University College London (2004-08)



My PhD will look at the 'corridor' phenomenon - both the conservation and development versions - exploring how they are constructed discursively, how they touch down materially and how they interact with each other. I intend my research to contribute to theorisations of development and conservation space in developing countries, provide a fuller understanding of policy-making processes in Tanzania, and offer insightful comparisons of conservation and development interventions and the purposes they serve.

My PhD is in collaboration with the UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Programme, which is a world leader in the emerging field of 'connectivity conservation'.
