I sat my own Junior Cert in 2012 and Leaving Cert in 2015 – finishing with 610 points, which included an A1 (H1) in both biology and chemistry.
I began my third level education with Biological and Chemical Sciences in University College Cork, graduating with a first class honours degree in Neuroscience in 2019.
During my 4 years of undergraduate study, I gave over 1200 one-on-one science grinds to secondary school students, and as of October 2019,
I am studying for a PhD in Developmental Neurobiology. I focus on making these science lessons as comprehensive and interactive as possible – with a focus on key terms and understanding how things work (rather than just learning blocks of text).
Outside of academia, my main interests are reading, exercising, travelling and volunteering in Africa.
