Congratulations to PhD student Charlotte Payne, who has been awarded one of the Vice-Chancellor’s Public Engagement with Research Award from Cambridge University for her work around edible insects. The University said “Working together with farmers and scientists at every stage, Payne developed a participatory research project on the sustainable use of edible caterpillars in southwestern Burkina Faso, and has explained the methods, aims and results to a variety of public audiences of all ages and backgrounds.”
