I have a wide interest in science, health and fitness and am also passionate about science engagement with the wider community. I have worked on a diverse range of projects over my career so far, from medical research projects in cancer biology (leukaemia and rare blood disorders) and tropical infectious disease research for a biotech company, to my PhD project wrangling ancient DNA from extinct bears!
My background and experience in working in such a diverse range of research areas as a scientist and research admin/manager has given me the ability to understand and interpret complex scientific and medical information, and to communicate the research in meaningful ways to different audiences.
