Knowledge Transfer Manager - Plants & Crops
My work focuses on plants and crops production, helping innovative companies and research organisations to find collaborators, and to apply for public and private funding.
Some of my key interest areas include precision farming, and biological and sustainable solutions to agriculture challenges. I hold a PhD in crop science from the University of Nottingham. I have expertise in plant and crop based agriculture, obtained from a career undertaking research in both academic and commercial environments in the areas of nitrogen use efficiency, water uptake, plant/crop phenotyping and developing innovative biofertilisers.
I can help you understand how you can work within AgriTech, particularly in the plants and crops industry. I can help organisations find partners within the AgriFood industry, academia, and others in order to develop rewarding collaborations to drive their innovations.
I work on the GCRF Agrifood Africa Connect programme, Innovate UK KTN’s Integrated Plant Management initiative, the AgriFood Tech Investment Showcase, and the Plant Sector Advisory Board.
