    Researcher Profile

    I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Centre for Evidence-Based Agriculture (CEBA) at Harper Adams University and I work with members of the team, collaborators and stakeholders to carry out systematic reviews and other evidence syntheses for decision makers.

    • Experience of conducting evidence syntheses (e.g. systematic maps, rapid evidence assessments and quick scoping reviews) 
    • PhD research: to determine the effect of differing soil management strategies on crop growth and yield. Included investigation of the changes in soil porosity, pore distribution and connectivity resulting from the differing traffic and tillage treatments using X-ray Computed Tomography.
