About

I am a Chemistry PhD graduate. I carried out my PhD in Structural Biology with a dash of Inorganic Chemistry thrown in. I wanted to start this blog as I have always had a love for the history of science and scientists. In fact, I decided that I wanted to pursue a degree in Chemistry after watching a video in a Chemistry lesson in Year 9 (very young to decide on degree choices!) about Sir Harry Kroto and the discovery of the carbon allotrope buckminsterfullerene. From that moment I was hooked on Chemistry, and it wasn’t until about a year ago that I realised how it was the history of science that I was actually most interested in. I enjoy going to science museums, especially if they have historical exhibits!

I hope this blog will provide some insight into different science histories and the many stories there are out there to share.
