Brazil

   
   
Roberto-Brazil
 

In my first year I realised what a good choice I had made to attend The University of Nottingham. I received a very warm welcome not only from my supervisors but also from all in the University. The Graduate School and other departments provide a variety of services and training that helped me a lot to understand the nature of a doctoral program. Currently, I am involved in a multidisciplinary research that involves geospatial science, agriculture and genetics. It is very challenging but also rewarding topic and certainly of great importance if we want to face the challenge of feed almost 9 billion people by 2050 in a scenario of climate change while keeping agricultural biodiversity.

Last November I had the opportunity to visit our campus in Malaysia to attend a doctoral workshop in Crops For Future. It was a nice week, full of activities in a great place with amazing people.
