In this Scholar Spotlight episode, Beth Davenport from the University of Durham talks about her Laidlaw research, white privilege, and how the COVID19 pandemic is affecting the climate crisis.
During her scholarship, Beth investigated genetic engineering techniques of plants. Specifically, she looked at genes responsible for stem development in barley and how it can help us to tackle the climate crisis. Later this year, Beth is starting her Masters in Applied Biosciences and Biotechnology at Imperial College London.
