Background

Dannielle completed her BSc in Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia, focusing her thesis research on North Atlantic fish distribution in relation to sea surface temperatures during a 21-year time period. She continued on at the same University to complete her MSc in Climate Change, with a thesis on the public perceptions of reduced meat consumption producing the single highest mark awarded in that cohort. Dannielle has now joined Cranfield to pursue a PhD in the affects of biostimulants on soil and plant conditions. 


Current activities

Dannielle is carrying out her PhD research within the School of Water, Energy and Environment. Her PhD research focuses on how soil management affects the performance of biostimulants in improving soil and crop health, leading to better food quality. Alongside laboratory and field trials, Dannielle will be working closely with Sainsburys to investigate the consumer facing impacts, and the value from fresh produce grown on better managed soils.
