The CCRI has appointed its new placement student for 2016/17. The successful candidate is Eloise Fresnay, an agronomy student from AgroParisTech.
Eloise has a strong academic background with interests in EU agriculture and advanced skills in statistical analysis. She is also interested in social science and will be spending part of her summer interviewing dairy farmers as an intern on a research project in Britanny before she starts her year’s placement with the CCRI in September.
Eloise will be replacing Eleanor Hawketts, who will return to the University of Bath to complete her degree in Politics and International Relations.
CCRI placement students assist with all aspects of research in CCRI and are given an opportunity develop new skills and contacts within the rural research sector.
