What kind of projects is Margaret Atkinson looking for?

As an Environmental Scientist, I have been prepared in the field of ecosystem science and environmental assessment with emphasis on the environmental sustainability, conservation, and field work. Specific classes taken over the course of my degree have allowed me to become educated and knowledgeable within the environmental sector as well gaining strong skills in wildlife identification, ecological land classification, aquatic assessment as well as soil and water sampling. 

The knowledge and experience that I have received through the BASF research team in 2020 and 2021 has broadened my skills and understanding within the environmental and agricultural field. This includes knowledge about research development, product development within a research farm as well as environmental assessment.  The research farm at BASF included over 100 agricultural pesticide trials in a four-month period. I worked with environmental chemicals such as herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, and adjuvants to understand the group numbers and the effect on the environment, field crops, weeds, and insects. As well developing understanding in the handling, production, and mixing of toxic chemicals within a laboratory as well as out in the environmental field. This has led me to gain direct understanding in research methodology and produce high quality results through data collection and analysis.
