Restrictions on social interaction and travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic have affected how researchers approach fieldwork and data collection. Whilst online focus groups have received attention since the 2000s as a method for qualitative data collection, relatively little of the relevant literature appears to have made use of now ubiquitous video...

Plant molecular farming (PMF) with tobacco could provide a sustainable and cheap platform for the production of high-value proteins for medical use. It could also offer European tobacco farmers an alternative, healthful end use for their crop. New plant breeding techniques (NPBTs) offer a means of quickly and precisely optimizing molecular farming...
Article

Plant molecular farming (PMF) is a convenient and cost-effective way to produce high-value recombinant proteins that can be used in the production of a range of health products, from pharmaceutical therapeutics to cosmetic products. New plant breeding techniques (NPBTs) provide a means to enhance PMF systems more quickly and with greater precision...

Article
Innovation has been promoted to help meet the various challenges faced by the UK fresh produce sector. However, what barriers hinder the development and spread of new ideas in the sector have not been investigated. This article explores the social and economic constraints to innovation by combining the agricultural innovation systems (AIS) conceptu...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Today, it is widely acknowledged that agriculture is at a crossroads. The need for greater productivity to cope with a growing population and changing consumer demands-coupled with the necessity that this be done sustainably by reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions-presents a number of challenges. Inspired by the successes of the Green Re...
Thesis
Full-text available
The number of climate refugees - people displaced by the effects of climate change - is expected to increase as the global climate crisis worsens. In this thesis, I explore pre-historical and historical human responses to climatic changes, focussing on migrations and adaptations, in order to contribute to on-going debates about the future impacts o...

Question
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, we've had to postpone several (physical) workshops we had planned in Europe. We're considering virtual workshops, but want to know what platforms we could use to host these workshops, which involve focus groups with visual materials and ranking exercises, in order to get as close to the "real thing" as possible.

Project
The CropBooster-P Consortium brings together some of Europe’s most prestigious plant science institutions and stakeholder organizations who jointly will develop the blueprints for the crop varieties of the future. They will do this by mapping and assessing current and future strategies, methods and technologies for crop improvement. Also, the consortium will develop a Roadmap for the introduction of these new crop varieties in current agricultural practice by aligning the development of these crops with the needs, concerns, wishes and expectations of society.
Project
PhotoBoost is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project that aims to increase the efficiency of photosynthesis in key food crops. The aim of my work package is to understand the needs and views of different stakeholders towards improving photosynthesis of potato and rice through the use of biotechnology.
Project
The aim of the CropBooster project is to future-proof crops in Europe by developing a strategy that meets the needs, expectations and values of society.
