I am a Year in Industry student here at the Earlham Institute, currently on placement as part of my MSci in Biotechnology with Bio-Business at the University of Aberdeen.

I am working in the Neil Hall group under the supervision of Dr Mark McMullan and Hélène Yvanne, looking at R gene diversity and network structure in wild sea beet populations across England.

Outside of university and work, I volunteer as a lay member on the West of Scotland Research Ethics Committee (specialised in Clinical Trials) – combining my passion for scientific research with my keen interest in Philosophy, specifically Applied Ethics/Bioethics. I am also co-Head Editor of The Elphinstone Review, the University of Aberdeen’s academic journal.
