Lecturer in Horticulture
My interests include the natural environment, plants and horticulture. After studying for my degree in Green Space Management, I developed a particular interest in garden history, urban greening and the promotion of open public spaces.
I have been teaching and managing Horticultural courses since 2011, along with working and supporting local community groups, working on sustainable food production and managing local community garden builds. I have also worked with vulnerable adults to develop employment opportunities and engagement in horticulture.
Having worked within the landscaping sector, I have had the opportunity to cultivate my passion about the design of functional landscapes which support the health and wellbeing of people, whilst making them sustainable and able to cope with future uncertainties of climate change.
My current focus is on developing scientific research opportunities with commercial organic growers and biotechnology companies.
