Masters Candidate, University College London
I am a Biologist and nature lover at heart.
Drawn to the practical application of science, I went directly from my BSc in Biotech into the Clinical Research industry where I have worked for over 10 years. I was able to work on multiple therapy areas, learn about the dynamics of the healthcare system, and requirements of evidence-based medical practice. Overtime, I became a Clinical Project Manager and co-responsible in the design of trials with medical colleagues. My most recent work was supporting Immuno-Oncology programs, which gave rise to my interest in medicinal mushrooms and then the current project..
Outside of this career, I am a lifelong learner, curious mind and avid traveller. This has led me to study and practice Sustainable Development, Ecological Farming and Functional Nutrition amongst other things.
More recently, I attained a PgDip in Sustainable Development with University College London focused on Sustainable, Urban Agriculture and took modules in Natural Medicines within the School of Pharmacy (MSc Pending Dissertation).
All of these activities stem from my passion for delivering forward-thinking strategies to enhanced wellbeing in wider contexts.
Thank you for reading and considering this project :)!
