I am currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Edinburgh (School of Geosciences) on “Meeting global protein demand through sustainable protein pathways”. Related to this work, I have also been offered a fellowship on the NEWS-UK (UK-India Virtual Joint Centres in Agricultural Nitrogen) programme. This project is focused on working towards food security through sustainable nitrogen/fertilizer management.

yqcdQhHxAlongisde these academic/teaching roles, I am also Sustainability and Business Development Manager for 3fbio– a biotechnology start-up focused on novel integrated production of food, fuel and animal feed from sustainable feedstocks. I also carry out analysis, produce data visualisations and blog on the topics of environment, climate change, energy and technology for OurWorldInData. OurWorldInData is an online web publication (founded by economist, Max Roser) with an aim to provide a global overview of how the world is changing through research and interactive data visualisations.
