I’m a 2nd year PhD student at Bristol studying animal microbiomes and parasites. This is my first year with Pint of Science and I was drawn to it since I believe many scientific ideas were born in the pub. Outside the office/lab, you can find me brunching, exploring, or showing my cat off on zoom.

I’m a postdoc at the University of Bristol. Right now, I juggle between researching how the brain releases the hormone that maintain us hydrated, bringing up two kids, hitting the gym and finding some time for a nice refreshing pint!
