Pria joined Synchronicity Earth in October 2020. Before this she was researching amphibian chytridiomycosis, a disease that has caused unprecedented species declines globally. She developed cost-effective molecular diagnostics for Bd, the fungal pathogen which causes chytridiomycosis. These diagnostics are now used to identify local disease dynamics and carry out ongoing monitoring of areas deemed to be high risk for pathogen emergence, primarily in Southern Africa. As well as a long-standing interest in amphibian conservation, she is especially interested in how community and ecosystem health can be improved together, synergistically. She completed a PhD in Infectious Disease Epidemiology and Environmental Sciences at Imperial College London and North West University, South Africa, and an MSc in Conservation Science at Imperial College London.
