I am a final year PhD student in Biology at the University of Bath, researching the use of microbial oil as a sustainable palm oil replacement. Prior to my PhD, I completed an MRes in Sustainable Chemical Technologies which focused on the application and influence of sustainable practices on both industrial and academic science. My undergraduate degree in Biosciences was completed at the University of Exeter.
In between my undergraduate degree and the beginning my MRes/PhD, I held two positions within the Biofuel (Shell Global Solutions) and Biopharmaceutical (UCB) sectors as a research scientist.
I am able to travel by car to appointments if required.
During my PhD, I have had three years experience as a laboratory demonstrator where I instruct and teach undergraduates the practical aspects of their degrees. I also prepare and run small tutorial sessions, where students are required to answer essay style questions and bring topics they have questions about. Both of these roles involve marking and providing feedback on work.
In addition, within my MRes year I completed modules in Science Communication, and as a result, have extensive experience in communicating science and running activities for primary and secondary school audiences.
My approach will be flexible and tailored to what the tutee requires and how they learn best. Sessions can include various elements, from completing past papers and improving exam technique to concentrating on specific elements of the content to ensure complete understanding.
My experience in applying to and interviewing for both academic and professional positions mean I feel confident to help an individual with CV and personal statement writing.
