Research Assistant

Makeda Davis

Brilliant Planet has given me the opportunity to tackle current environmental problems using mechanisms that already exist in nature. Here, I get to work in a team grows algae to save the world.

Laboratory Coordinator

Majda Baraaouche

The potential conflict between tackling climate change and meeting our food requirements concerned me. It became clear to me that carbon dioxide removal must also make use of non-arable lands like deserts, if it is to truly scale. Brilliant Planet is creating new productivity in the desert, applying it in my home country. I felt compelled to be a part of it!

The idea is big, the challenge is real and the journey is endlessly interesting and meaningful. It is made clear every day that a company like Brilliant Planet is much needed in todays world of carbon dioxide removal, as one of few truly scalable and verifiable scientific outfits in this field. Whilst we are unique in this space, it is encouraging to see other companies realising the potential of using microalgae for carbon capture, and I am excited to be part of this pioneering industry.

With the ever-increasing urgency of the environmental crisis, I wanted to contribute my skillset to building a more sustainable future. Brilliant Planet gave me the opportunity to work towards that goal as part of a diverse team of experts who share my vision for better environmental stewardship.


Our UK offices and laboratories are located within the historical Rothamsted Research. As  the longest-running agricultural research institution in the world, Rothamsted has a rich heritage dating back to 1843. Located in Harpenden, Hertfordshire, UK, we are proud to continue a tradition of pioneering research, infusing our everyday work with historical depth and intellectual vigor.

Premier research facilities

Brilliant Planet operates top-tier multi-disciplinary laboratory facilities, enabling to our groundbreaking work in carbon removal technology. These facilities, together with Rothamsted's 400 other agricultural research scientists and services, support complex research and offer a synergistic environment where our scientists can collaborate, experiment, and develop cutting-edge solutions.

The fusion of Rothamsted's long history of scientific excellence with our forward-thinking mission creates an ideal setting for Brilliant Planet to advance our research, pushing the boundaries of carbon removal technology.

Rothamsted is located 25 minutes by direct train from Kings Cross Station and 30 minutes form Farringdon.

History and Heritage

Our premises are located on the ground where John Bennet Lawes, a noted Victorian entrepreneur and scientist, established the Rothamsted Experimental Station in 1843. Lawes, along with chemist Joseph Henry Gilbert, launched a series of field experiments that still continue today, laying the foundation for modern scientific agriculture and the principles of crop nutrition. In recognition of this legacy, our facilities stand as a testament to the power of persistent innovation.

Rothamsted Research has been home to many notable scientists and a breeding ground for ground-breaking concepts. Notably, in 1919, Ronald Fisher created the theory of experimental design here, cementing Rothamsted's reputation as a significant hub for research in statistics and genetics. Through these methodologies, scientists at Rothamsted have contributed extensively to agricultural science, from the discovery of systemic herbicides and pyrethroid insecticides to advancements in the fields of virology, nematology, soil science, and pesticide resistance.

Join us at Brilliant Planet as we build on the rich heritage of Rothamsted Research, aiming to create a brilliant and sustainable future for our planet.

Rothamstead today

Rothamsted Research stands as a paragon of scientific innovation in the field of agricultural science today. With an enduring commitment to progressing low carbon innovations, this historic institution embraces the challenges of modern agriculture with a clear focus on sustainability.

With the unique ability to work across different scales and disciplines, Rothamsted Research seeks to deliver expertise, enhanced data, improved practices, and groundbreaking technologies, all aimed at improving performance, resilience, and value. The goal is to raise the productivity of crop and livestock systems while tackling pressing issues such as weed, disease, and insect resistance to agrochemicals. The focus is not only on challenges above the ground but also beneath it, with ongoing research aimed at improving soil health.

Central to the mission at Rothamsted Research is the enhancement of natural capital and the reduction of agriculture's carbon footprint. By investigating ways to minimize emissions in agricultural processes, Rothamsted is playing a crucial role in the transition towards low-carbon farming.

Moreover, the quest for innovation extends to creating novel nutritional and bioeconomic value. By adding value to crops and other products, Rothamsted Research is reimagining the potentials of agriculture in a circular economy. It's this spirit of forward-thinking and problem-solving that truly cements Rothamsted Research as a cutting-edge centre for agricultural science and low-carbon innovations.


"Inclusivity and diversity are FUNdAMENTAL TO COMBATTING CLIMATE CHANGE."

Mariya Getsova, CEO Brilliant Planet

Brilliant Planet's Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:

At Brilliant Planet, we believe that our strength lies in our diversity. We know that the best ideas and solutions come from the broadest range of perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences. We’re proud to foster a culture where everyone feels valued, included, and empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to work.

Our Vision

We envision a world where everyone has an equal opportunity to thrive, and where the preservation of our planet aligns with the upliftment of all people, especially those in the Global South and rural environments.

As a carbon removal company operating in these regions, we are committed to equitable practices, cultural sensitivity, and sustainable development that benefits local communities.

Our Approach

Inclusion, for us, is more than just a corporate value—it is the heartbeat of our operations. We understand that to achieve true equity, we need to continually adapt and learn, embracing the rich tapestry of cultures, traditions, and histories within the communities we serve.

We place special emphasis on employing women in traditional rural environments, such as in Morocco, where economic opportunities are often limited.  We strive to empower these communities by offering sustainable employment, education, and advancement opportunities. Our aim is to make a meaningful and positive impact on both the environment and the lives of the people we work with.

Our Commitment

We are committed to building and fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive work environment.

This means recruiting, training, and promoting the most diverse and talented team possible.
