Kasia, is a graduate of Warsaw University of Life Science, has just commenced her PhD entitled, ‘The Characterisation of Potato Cyst Nematode (PCN) Populations in Great Britain for Sustainable Crop Management.’
 
“Plant pathology has always fascinated me and I’ve been interested in crop production since my childhood, harvesting potatoes with my parents on our small farm in Poland,” says Kasia. 
 
“Through a combination of academic study and research, I have become acutely aware of how destructive PCN can be. Development of effective and safe methods of control is crucial.”
 
“The aim of my PhD is provide a wider understanding of PCN in Great Britain, to benefit future farming generations and potato consumers.”
