I grew up in Weston-super-Mare and completed my undergraduate degree (MBiol, BSc) in biology at the University of Leeds, where I graduated from in 2017.

During the course of my undergraduate studies I became interested in plant sciences and agriculture, and how science can be applied to the real world. I completed a summer fresh produce research placement at Harper Adams University which boosted my interest in this field and opened my eyes to the opportunities in this sector. All of which has led me to undertaking this Waitrose CTP studentship investigating variation in salad onion production with G’s growers.
