I am studying a John Oldacre PhD studentship entitled:

Understanding beef and sheep farming's social boundary: Re-thinking the concept of social licence to operate to unlock its value and usefulness to farming and wider society.

I have a background in business and farming. I have farmed livestock on our grassland farm in Devon since 2001, working to agroecological principles and developing local markets for our produce. More recently I have been involved in campaigning and policy development for sustainable food and farming. I have a Food Policy Msc from City, University of London (2020).
