LITE Technician

In 2019,I graduated from the University of Liverpool with a Bsc (Hons) in Tropical Disease Biology. For my undergraduate research project, I explored the use of the drug nitisinone, an inhibitor of insect tyrosine metabolism, in the viability of Aedes aegypti and Anopheles gambiae mosquitoes. In 2020, I graduated from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine with an Msc in Tropical Disease Biology. Here I studied an array of topics, such as epidemiology, microscopy and humanitarian assistance. For my research project, I undertook a literature synthesis that investigated the impact of the exposure to pollutants on mosquito fitness.

I have written articles for the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine blog and the University of Liverpool Student journal.

I have been involved in the family science days at museums organised by both of these institutions. I have done freelance science writing work for a science magazine.
