I am a PhD Researcher at the School of Biological and Environmental Sciences, Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) , UK. My research study is focused on investigating how "Climate change alters the nutritional contents of crops." In summary, experimenting vegetable crops particularly, spinach, kale and rockets, in controlled elevated CO2 and heat stress conditions then assessing the nutritional quality of their edible parts, through a combination of biochemical analysis and an artificial digestion system coupled with cell culture models, mimicking mammalian digestion.
