Biography

I graduated from Imperial College London with a BSc in Life Sciences in 2011. Durring my degree I greatly enjoyed modules on Molecular Plant Pathogen Interactions, Plant Biotechnology and Advanced Topics in Molecular Plant Biology.

After graduating, I worked for the public engagement company Gallomanor Communications Ltd. where I helped with the 'I'm a Scientist' project, which gets school students and scientists talking online. I then went to work for the British Society for Plant Pathology (BSPP) as their first Outreach Officer. I created various educational resources and events, which help teach about plant pathogens to wider audience. 

This year I have been awarded a 4 year BBSRC-funded PhD on the South West Doctoral Training Partnership and I am currently working on my first rotation project.
