Research Interests

I am interested in researching focus on sustainable solutions and using cutting-Edge engineering to benefit the environment.

About me

I have a master’s degree in mechanical engineering During my degree I studied sustainable initiative such as building an offgrid refrigeration system to assist farmers in rural Africa. However it was my experience in designing a fully automated vertical farm that sparked my interest in how technology can improve sustainability. This experience has motivated me to pursue further knowledge and its practical applications. The CDT is the perfect opportunity for me to deepen my expertise and contribute to sustainable agriculture.

I am excited to do my PhD at Cambridge University.
