Simone is a fifth-year Chemical Physics undergraduate student and hopes to work in research one day. When not in the lab or the library she is likely to be arguing away at Debates Union, and has a weakness for well-made cappuccinos, obscure science fiction books, and dancing to whatever music happens to be playing.
Passionate about physics and communicating big ideas.
Chiara is a neuroscience PhD student investigating mechanisms of recovery from brain injury and can be primarily found in the lab or sitting in front of the microscope. She recently discovered her love for science communication, and has participated in organising and managing in various events and magazines involved in it. In her spare time, she enjoys discovering the world with her camera, occasional netflix marathons and cold pints.
James is a second year Roslin Institute PhD student investigating the clinical potential of biomarkers in inflammatory diseases.
Due to its collaborative nature James believes communication is key to the advancement of science and as such is delighted to be part of the EUSci magazine team.
Outside of the world of science James enjoys reading, has a keen interest in current affairs, and is an avid badminton player.
Teo (short for Teodora) is a science enthusiast currently working towards a PhD in Cardiovascular Science. In no particular order, she loves Arrested Development, cake and Arrested Development.
I am a PhD student (finishing my second year now) studying Cell Biology. My interest in the lab is in understanding the rules that govern how DNA is packaged inside nuclei of cells. I have varied interests outside the lab. I am a belly dancer so most evenings after work that’s what I am doing. I also write my own blog, read a lot (fiction and non-fiction), LOVE coffee and always have tickets booked for my next travel destination.
Hi, I´m Jini, a 3rd year neuroscience phd student and grammar enthusiast. When I’m not in the lab I’m usually dancing (the dancing may or maynot have occasionally entered lab working hours), cycling or cooking.
I am a third year PhD student at the Roslin Institute, studying host-adaptation of Salmonella bacteria. In my spare time, I like to drink copious amounts of coffee, read books, and watch lots of Netflix.
James is a second year theoretical physics PhD student researching how fluids become turbulent. In his spare time he enjoys watching spurs, spinning d’n’b and exploring Edinburgh’s many great pubs.
Alyssa is an alumna of the Integrative Neuroscience masters program who loves to illustrate (and write about) interesting science. She served as lead design of Seattle University’s newspaper for two years and has written and designed for several publications, including previous issues of EuSci. Although neuroscience is her general area of passion, she also loves exploring developmental biology, sociology, and anything relating to the future of humanity. She is currently working as a freelance graphic designer and lab manager for a community biology lab in Seattle.
Hi! I’m Dianna and I recently graduated from a MSc in Science Communication and Public Engagement at the University of Edinburgh. Previously, I studied a BSc in Biochemistry and Cell Biology. I really like the idea of combining science with creative arts and storytelling (I relentlessly hold onto my dream of one day creating a science Broadway-style play narrated by Morgan Freeman) to bring science to a variety of different audiences. When not engaged in a scientific world, I enjoy writing stories, swimming, and last but certainly not least, watching, reading, and plotting to become a guest star on Poldark.
