About me



Personal details


I was born and lived in Wolverhampton for almost 20 years. Since then I have also lived in Leicester and Wellingborough, but I now reside in sunny Brighton, which is the most interesting place I have lived (I think being by the seaside is still a novelty!).

My main interest away from Science is football. I enjoying playing and I am part of the ICG's five-a-side football team. I also enjoy watching any football and have followed Wolves for many years. I do enjoy other sports too, such as badminton, pool and darts. I also enjoy exploring new places, both in the UK and abroad. I am hoping to stay in science for a long time, as it is the perfect job to visit many new places!
