BIOGRAPHY

Hannah is working on a project aiming to design habitat management options for the overall control of insect pests in fresh produce systems, focusing on carrot systems. The project is demand driven with collaboration with commercial partners to identify biodiversity based solutions to carrot fly and willow carrot aphid, significant pests for carrot growers. In 2017, Hannah completed her Master of Science degree at the University of Warwick, where she worked on establishing the spatial distribution of carrot pests in the landscape. Currently, Hannah is a first-year PhD student on the Waitrose Collaborative Training Partnership with BBSRC funding.
