Since starting this blog, I have finished my master’s degree in Alzheimer’s research at University of Southampton. This blog was originally a little overview of some of the research I learnt about during my time there, but will probably change into something else now.
I have now left research (for the time being) and have just started training to be a secondary school biology teacher. I’m very excited about this as communicating science to others has always been my favourite part of research.
I am very interested in how best to teach science to teenagers and how to keep them enthused and excited about the subject. I’m especially keen to explore ways in which we can encourage women to not only follow a scientific career, but actually stay in scientific research.
