The twenty-year-old, said: “Harper Adams University gave me the opportunity to become familiar with scientific research.
“Because of the excellent support that Harper Adams has given me, I was able to develop myself personally as well as on an academic level. On top of that my social life was great as I gained friends from all over the world.”
Lecturer in Sustainable Technologies, Dr Leticia Chico-Santamarta, supervised Lise Marie during her time at Harper Adams alongside a range of other staff. Dr Chico-Santamarta, said: “It was a great pleasure to work with Lise Marie as she worked really hard and was very eager to learn about a new topic.
