Research Fellow, Faculty of Social Sciences



I joined the University of Nottingham, School of Sociology and Social Policy as a Research Fellow in July 2017 on the EVAL-FARMS project. This inter-disciplinary project aims to investigate the potential development of AMR within the farm manures and slurries. My role involves understanding on-farm practices of antibiotic use and waste management, alongside eliciting culturally embedded ways in which scientists and stakeholders understand AMR risks and their management.

My previous work (PhD) focused on the relationship between science, policy and agriculture, examining the tensions between UK policy and on-farm prospects and barriers for agricultural transitions in the context of emerging biofuel technologies.
