Katie Garvey BSc (Hons), MSc

Emerging from this unique research area, and with the professional recognition of a doctorate, I anticipate that I will be well-placed to take a key role in advising agriculture and government in future decision making challenges.

My next career move would be to seek a position in either a large or multinational company where I would seek to utilise my research on a more global level. Equally attractive would be a position with a UK government Department, e.g. DEFRA, or the European Commission, which would offer the opportunity to advise decision makers on economic policy relevant to agricultural energy use. (Currently, there are calls from both the EC and DEFRA in support of farmland efficiency). The benefit of such positions will be the opportunity for presentation at multinational forums to enhance my credibility as a leader in the agricultural field and to liaise with all levels in the supply chain.
