Andra has a background in ecology and conservation, having completed her MSc at Edinburgh Napier University, where her research focused on exploring spider community assemblages in raised bogs and timber plantation systems. She worked as a research technician for Restoring Resilient Ecosystems at University of Stirling where she furthered her arachnological skills and helped understand ecosystem function along a woodland complexity gradient. Currently, she is pursuing her PhD, examining the biodiversity benefits that sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) can provide in addressing the pollinator crisis across the Central Belt of Scotland.
