They/Them, She/Her

I am bisexual or pansexual and I am a chemist and materials scientist.//

I’m a pansexual or bisexual Doctoral candidate in Materials Science and Engineering. My original degree was in Chemistry and my true love still lies in Polymer Chemistry. I was fortunate enough to grow up in Brighton and didn’t ever really think about being LGBTQIA+ or not! I moved to South Wales for my doctorate and quickly realised that was not normally the case. My doctorate has taken me to some interesting places, for the first year I spent my time watching paint dry! In the last year I’ve been working on functionalised resin synthesis, whilst also becoming more active in STEM LGBTQIA+ outreach.
