I am in my first year as a PhD student here at CRPR and funded by the John Oldacre Foundation. My aim is to investigate possible paths towards more sustainable ways of raising livestock. This includes issues of environmental impact, animal welfare and economic sustainability on farm level as well as considering consumer behaviour, public health and policy development surrounding livestock in the UK. 

I started my academic education at Humboldt Universitaet in Berlin studying Biology. I then moved to the UK to study an MSc in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security at Newcastle University.
