Pint of Science coordinator for the 6th time (?? I’ve lost count!) and loving it. Meanwhile, post-doc at UCL looking at how eyes are affected by diabetes. Beside science and public engagement, I love food, cooking it, playing football or tennis and reading. In the photo, I’m the one in the back.

After completing my PhD in Tissue Engineering, using vessel-derived cells to build artificial muscles, I am now exploring the field of vascular biology. I think communicating people what is happening “in the lab” is key to fight common fears and to show how Science can be inspiring!

I am a post-doctoral researcher working on vascular biology and angiogenesis. Some people say scientists are eccentric or non-sociable or geeks… And so I thought we could prove these people wrong over a pint of beer and science or few! Join the mission!
