Biography

With a background in organic horticulture, Judith is a researcher at Coventry University's Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience. Her research focuses on organic growing systems with particular interests in pollinating insects, sustainable growing media and citizen science.

Judith's primary role is as Living Lab Coordinator, leading a network of small scale growers in trials of more diverse crops to bring greater resilience to climate change. 

Previously, Judith was Project Manager of Organic-PLUS, an EU Horizon 2020 project comprising 25 partner institutions, investigating alternatives to contentious inputs in organic agriculture across Europe. Judith also worked in the project's SOIL workpackage, trialling replacements and phase-out pathways for peat, plastic mulch and animal manure.

With interests in pollinators and citizen science, Judith worked on the Heritage Lottery Funded 'Blooms for Bees', a  project which created an app to help gardeners identify and record Bumblebees (Bombus spp.). Her work with bumblebees continued in TRUE, an EU Horizon 2020 project exploring bumblebee preferences in heritage legume varieties. Judith has also contributed to citizen science research to identify ornamental plants at risk of becoming invasive.
