Project Scientist

I now work as a Project Scientist in the Hall lab group looking at the effect of probiotics on the microbiota of premature neonates.

I graduated with a BSc in Biomedical Science from Nottingham Trent University, during my degree I completed an industrial placement year in the Virus Reference Department at Public Health England.

My undergraduate experience cemented my passion for microbiology, and led me to undertake an MSc in Medical Microbiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. My MSc initiated my interest in the microbiome and its impact on health and disease progression.
