In 2018 I graduated from the University of Liverpool with a 1st class honours degree in Biological Sciences.

In September 2019 I began my PhD in the Faculty of Infectious and Tropical Diseases with Professor James Logan and Dr Rachel Allen (SGUL) where I am investigating human attractiveness to malaria mosquitoes.
