I am a post-doctoral Research Chemist, working in the field of fluorescent sensors and nanotechnology for biological sensing. My PhD research involved the development of photoswitchable, fluorescent metal ion sensors. Now, in my first post-doctoral position, I am facilitating collaboration between the chemical, physical and biological aspects of interdisciplinary research projects around IVF.
In my spare time I present fun and interactive science workshops with kids through Children's University, complete with slime, strawberries and the occasional explosion.
