I am a student from Crete, Greece, who just finished her second year of studies in developmental biology. I am keenly interested in foreign languages, exploring the beautiful city I study in, and tickling the ol’ ivories. It’s an incredible experience being part of the Edinburgh iGEM team, as the competition has given us the opportunity to push back the boundaries of biology and apply our ideas to create novel solutions to current problems. It’s also a unique way to become familiar with different subjects and interdisciplinary collaboration, which I believe to be the future of research.
I am second year Biochemistry student from New York. In my spare time I enjoy restoring antique furniture, teaching dance, and making use of the Oxford comma. I also enjoy playing the violin and other instruments, and can bake a mean kartoshka. I have been enjoying every moment with the team so far and love interacting with such a diverse group of individuals.
I am a second year Molecular Genetics student from Bristol. I do a bit of programming and writing and am very excited to be helping out with Edinburgh iGEM. When I am not working with the team I do gardening at a hospice. During my time here I have learned a lot about science and have become a big fan of falafel wraps despite being skeptical at first.
