Research overview

I work as an Research Engagement Officer in UKRSO where I organise and coordinate research engagement events and activities between Lancaster University researchers and 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.

I completed my PhD studying relationships between plant traits and soil microbial communities in haymeadows based in the Plant-Soil Ecology Laboratory in LEC in 2013.  This project was part of the pan-European project VITAL working with 7 partners across Europe. I have since working on the ERC funded ForestPrime project and the RCUK funded School-University Partnership Initative.
