Catherine Walker

Catherine joined Sense about Science as a PIPs intern in September 2018. She is in the final year of
her PhD in agricultural food security at Rothamsted Research and the University of Nottingham –
where her work has particularly focused on studying the molecular interactions that occur between
plant pathogenic fungi and their hosts. Her love of science is accompanied by an interest in how
research informs policy and how it can be maximised for public benefit.
