I am a final year PhD student at the John Innes Centre and University of Anglia, where I am studying the use of plant medicinal compounds and the affects on human skin.

I am a recent convert to plant science- having never studied it until starting my PhD. Now I am a massive Plant Science fan, and I am on a mission to showcase Plant science- and why more people should love it as much as I do!

In this blog I hope to shed some light on plant science- what do plant scientists actually do? How does it affect the wider community? and show that there is much more to plant science than you may think.

As part of this I am starting a new section ‘meet the scientist’ where I will be interviewing other PhD students in the world of plant science.  If you are a plant-scientist and would like to be featured please contact me!!
