What is your most epic life moment?
Without wanting to live up to the ‘science geek’ stereotype, seeing red crystals through a microscope 14 months into a protein crystallography PhD was pretty epic.
What’s your secret weapon?
Don’t sweat the small stuff. And don’t waste time watching reality TV.
What’s the most ballsy move you’ve ever made?
Dropping out of a zoology degree at Liverpool University after realising that it wasn’t the right course or place for me and reapplying the following year to study biochemistry at Southampton University. It was the right move and opened up opportunities that I wouldn’t otherwise have had.
