I am gay and I am a research scientist.//
I’m an analytical biochemist who studies harmful and helpful bioatives produced by algae. I grew up in a small city in New Zealand and didn’t have many gay role models, let alone gay role models working in science. One of my hopes for the future is that LGBTI young people can grow up believing that they can do anything, not just what society stereotypically expects them to.
