Hi, I’m Alana! I’m from Navan in county Meath. I graduated from DCU in 2019 with a degree in Geography and Human Development. I am currently completing the PMEP in DCU and have just finished my first year. My specialism subject is in climate change.
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, from beginning to end. BiOrbic has allowed me to gain a wealth of knowledge and skills in relation to the bioeconomy, which I am excited to bring into the classroom in the near future.
BiOrbic, Bioeconomy SFI Research Centre is a collaboration of over 100 researchers at a number of institutions across Ireland. It’s focus is research that contributes to a ‘sustainable, circular bioeconomy’. This means ensuring that all application of Ireland’s natural resources is waste free and sustains our environment. As well as excelling in research, BiOrbic aims to engage rural communities and schools as the drivers of and future leaders within the bioeconomy.
