Yashee Thakkar

Assistant Project Manager

Holding an MSc in Environmental Change and International Development from the University of Sheffield, Yashee's research on sustainable palm oil in her master's dissertation has ignited her passion for promoting sustainability and human rights in supply chains. Before joining the Proforest team, Yashee worked as an environmental consultant, specialising in auditing clients against environmental legislation and project management.

Her diverse background includes teaching English in Vietnam for two years and volunteering as a conservation research assistant in Indonesia and South Africa. While in Indonesia, she achieved her PADI Open water qualification, which enabled her to conduct coral reef surveying in the coral triangle. In South Africa, Yashee gathered data on the fynbos and fauna at the Gondwana game reserve, contributing to vital research on species diversity.

She is fluent in English, has a working knowledge of Hindi, Gujarati, and French.
