Research overview

I work as Research Project Administrator for the Lancaster RCUK SUPI project (http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/schools/rcuk-schools-university-partnerships-initiative/ ) where I organise and coordinate events and activities between Lancaster University researchers and the South Lakes Federation of schools, with the aim of inspiring the next generation of researchers. Coming from a research background myself allows me to see the importance of engaging school students in research, both for the students and the researchers.

In 2013 I completed my PhD studying relationships between plant traits and soil microbial communities in haymeadows based in the Plant-Soil Ecology Laboratory in LEC.  This project was part of the pan-European project VITAL (http://www.project-vital.net/) working with 7 partners across Europe.
