During my Msci in Bioveterinary Science at Harper Adams University, my interest in the intersection between human land use (such as farming) and environmental impact grew. During this degree, I gained experience with farmers in East Anglia as well as developed a theoretical knowledge of sustainable farming practises and why they are important, as well as why landowners and tenants make the decisions that they do. After this, I worked as a research assistant for Cambridge University as part of the Carbon Credits Centre. Within the group, I researched the displacement of agricultural land use as the result of conservation practises (leakage). Alongside these experiences, I enjoy developing my teaching skills and have worked as an undergraduate supervisor at Cambridge University for the subjects of Conservation Science and Applied Ecology. I also have an online biology tutoring business. My experiences so far have enhanced my problem-solving skills, organisation and communication within and beyond scientific audiences. These will be carried forward and developed further through my PhD.
