Joycelyn is an award-winning environmental justice researcher and educator.

Her PhD research centres on the co-design of justice-led conservation technologies, specifically bioacoustics, for the conservation of tropical forest ecosystems, working with rural forest-fringe communities that are commonly excluded from conservation and technology research. Her scholarly work employs ethnographic, participatory design, and machine learning methods to contribute learnings and practices to the emerging field of Conservation Data Justice. She has presented her work to a wide range of audiences, most recently through her TEDxLondon Talk.

She is also the founder of ClimateInColour, an online education platform and community for the climate curious, making climate conversations more accessible, diverse and hopeful. Through ClimateInColour, Joycelyn has made accessible the topics of climate justice, climate colonialism, activism, creativity and systems change in a wide variety of forums on and offline, including platforms such as Meta, The United Nations Geneva Dialogues, Greenpeace, Channel 4, Chatham House and Oxford University. She was 2022’s winner of the Emerging Designer London Design Medal and was most recently featured in British Vogue’s December 2023 ‘Forces for Change’ Issue.
