I am a in the first year of a PhD in Biochemistry, researching time-resolved and serial X-ray crystallography, which means I fire X-rays and lasers at proteins, seeing what they look like, and how they change over time. When I'm not playing with X-rays, I can be found riding my bike or eating cake.
