Project Staff: UK National Tree Seed Project Officer
MSc Conservation and Forest Protection, Imperial College, 2011
I am Project Officer on the UK National Tree Seed Project. This involves building a multi-provenance seed collection of all woody trees and shrubs from across the UK at the Millennium Seed Bank. I develop seed collecting partnerships with forestry and conservation organisations, and arrange and carry out fieldwork. I also work on project management and building the infrastructure of the project, including developing sampling strategies, prioritising targets, building a database, contributing to research and public engagement.
