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’m Haris and I am a 4th year Medical Student at the University of Edinburgh. However for all my love of science, I’ve always been fascinated by its intersection with the Arts, and in particular the Literary Arts, and last year I actually completed an intercalated honours in Medicine and Literature. Doctors, as well as being good observers of the scientific world, should also be creatively engaged with abstractions, and I think that is what I love most about literature.
In my spare time I play too much Playstation. I enjoy football, both watching and playing, and I am a serial watcher of game show re-runs on challenge.
Genetics PhD student here – I study how the physical structure of DNA can create genetic variation in mammalian populations. If found outside of the lab I’ll be racing around a rugby pitch, cooking up a storm in the kitchen or ticking off an ever-extending list of new restaurants and bars.
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.
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.
Simone is a third-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.
Bonnie is a cardiovascular science PhD student studying the impact of genetics on obesity. Hobbies include writing about science, drinking too much coffee and watching Netflix Originals.
Sam is a scientist and a big fan of the outdoors. When he’s not in the laboratory working towards a PhD in Optical Medical Imaging, he can be found in the mountains or in a forest riding his bike, hiking or clinging to a cliff-face.
Sometimes he also finds time to write for his blog https://samueljeremystanfield.
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.
I’m Dianna and I’m currently studying an MSc in Science Communication and Public Engagement. Previously, I studied a BSc in Biochemistry and Cell Biology. I really like the idea of combining science with creative arts (I relentlessly hold onto my dream of one day creating a science Broadway-style play narrated by Morgan Freeman) and using this combination 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.
