BackgroundI studied my undergraduate degree in Environmental Science, focussing on renewable energy and climate change mitigation. I then gained experience in countryside conservation, urban agriculture, forestry and ecological assessment in both the UK and India. After this, I studied a Master’s degree in Finland specialising on wood-based bioenergy systems and quantifying environmental mitigation from reversing agriculture-driven deforestation. I then studied an integrated PhD at the Bioenergy Centre for Doctoral Training at the University of Leeds, specialising in the environmental and economic optimisation of food waste management. Alongside my studies, I have worked on projects involving the utilisation of various organic wastes for the generation of renewable energy and soil amendment products.
