Who we are
Chairman: Anna Thomson
Where are you studying? University of Reading
What are you studying? My PhD project aims to generate best practice advice for farmers on the agronomy, conservation, and precision feeding of clover and lucerne in modern dair systems.
What have you gained from BSAS? The student council is a great way of getting involved in organising events and training days. Working together with other PhD students on the council and sharing our experiences has also broadened my network of contacts beyond my own institution - I know we will remain in contact as we progress in our respective fields.
Deputy chairman: Laura Tennant
