I am in my final year of a biology degree at the University of Bath and Features Editor at bathimpact. I have previously held research assistant positions at the Medical Sciences Division of Oxford University and Newcastle Institute of Neuroscience. My research interests include mitchondrial genetics, evolutionary genetics, gender studies and anthropology.
I have written for the Royal Society of Chemistry and was shortlisted for their Chemistry World science communication competition.
