After having graduated from Aerospace Engineering Master's (MEng) programme at the University of Liverpool, I decided to focus my attention on a topic where I could have the most meaningful impact. Food production is at the core of many of our economic, environmental and social challenges. As global populations continue to rise, we must increase food production by 70% to feed a projected global population of 9.77 billion by 2050, with limited arable land, whilst also attempting to reduce associated greenhouse gas emissions. This is whilst tackling the issues of water scarcity, climate change and rapid urbanisation. I therefore changed my direction towards building a sustainable future, and have undertaken a Ph.D. to research solutions for sustainable food production.
