Cambridge Global Food Security

An Interdisciplinary Research Centre at the University of Cambridge


George Crane is a PhD student at the University of Cambridge Crop Science Centre and National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB). His project explores how different farming practices influence the diversity and abundance of symbiotic microorganisms, and how these microorganisms influence crop yields.

George runs collaborative projects with the Alan Turing Institute, and the Food and Environment Research Agency (FERA), developing novel statistical methods to identify indicators of soil health, and candidates for field scale microbial inoculation. George is Co-Chair of the Cambridge Food Security Forum (CFSF) and through this platform, has hosted a Venture Creation Weekend in Food Sustainability with the Cambridge Judge Business School.

George is funded by the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB), and the AgriFood Charities Partnership (AFCP).
