"I learned the craft of beekeeping from my grandfather and soon became so fascinated with these hard-working insects that entomology became my passion. I’ve published 20 entomology papers, described 10 species new to science and presented my results at international conferences. I chose Animal Science at Hartpury because it focuses on the subject area I love. The facilities are unparalleled and I’ve had so many opportunities to gain practical experience working with animals."
