I started as a crop research consultant at ADAS in January 2022 after completing my PhD at the University of Sheffield looking at the potential for grass-clover leys to improve soil structure and soil carbon storage in an arable rotation. You can find my major finding published from my PhD open-access here: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0048969722054572
Since being at ADAS, I have been involved in multiple different projects, including the Cereal YEN and reporting on the impact of increasing fertiliser prices in 2022. I have an interest in sustainable agro-ecosystems at the rotation scale, so am interested in getting involved with anything to do with grass/leys in rotation, break crops (e.g. oats, legumes) and improving the sustainability of livestock production through more farm-produced, or UK-grown feed. I also have an interest in bringing technology and information to agriculture, including metrics, dynamic benchmarking and remote sensing to inform decisions.
