I'm an agriculture enthusiast dedicated to supporting farmers. I'm deeply upset by the impacts climate change is having on farming families and the hungry people that depend on them.
Through my Future Leaders Scholarship, I'm undertaking an interdisciplinary PhD dedicated to improving crop insurance for farmers at home and abroad. I'm passionate about bringing agricultural science into use and will excitedly undertake internships in Asia and an MIT design thinking course alongside the PhD.
My three main hobbies are composting, camping and trying in vain to stop my housemates from putting onion and citrus peel in our compost.
