Introducing SCI Ambassador, Bex Southwell

Bex Southwell

"The smaller one day events are also perfect for gaining more experience in presenting your work."

What are your research interests?
I have links to agriculture as my family have lived and worked on a farm for several generations. This and my interests in environmental science make my PhD project perfect for me – the fate and degradation of pesticides in flowing water systems. I am currently completing a PhD, supervised by Dr. Gary Bending, which includes an industrial CASE studentship with Syngenta.

How did you first get involved with SCI?
I attended a Young Researchers in Crop Science event in July 2016. This was circulated by our department and I thought the conference area was worthwhile to my research.

What do you hope to gain from your involvement with SCI?
I hope to network with people who work in a similar area to myself and practice presenting my research at relevant events.

Why would you encourage your peers to join SCI?
I think anyone working in a similar area to myself (chemicals/agriculture) would benefit for the same reasons as I have. The smaller one day events are also perfect for gaining more experience in presenting your work.
