Amy Lipscombe


Doctoral International Teaching Fellow

I began my academic life at the University of Winchester, studying the BSc (Hons) Geography between 2016 and 2019. During this time, I focused on climate and environmental change through the Quaternary period. Following this, I completed my postgraduate degree at the Royal Agricultural University, studying the MSc in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security. I joined the RAU as a Doctoral International Teaching Fellow in January 2023, lecturing at both the RAU in Cirencester, England and QAU in Qingdao, China. Alongside my lecturing, I am currently undertaking a PhD, investigating student motivations around studying agriculture at undergraduate level and within this I will be looking to develop outreach activities to increase participation.
