Farming background

I have recently worked for a small environmental consultancy in Cornwall (currently a zero hours contract). I have a detailed knowledge of the planning and collection of soil samples in relation to site investigations. I have also gained experience of soil logging and testing of ground density. Interpretation of soil testing results has also been an important part of my work. My recent MSc project focused on agricultural land and soil erosion; using geophysical and precision agriculture methods to improve nutrient management. The study was carried out with the assistance of a local farmer, who received a copy of the results of the project findings. I have also worked at a land-based college, supporting teaching and learning in the agriculture, equine and horticulture sectors.


I enjoy cycling and I am also a steward at public concerts held at Truro Cathedral.
