❝This post shares the work that I am most proud of – a study into potential routes for amino acid synthesis on Enceladus, one of Saturn’s moons which we think could be a key candidate in the search for life.  Please, reach out and I’d love to share the full paper with anyone interested!❞

❝My most successful post is the sharing of my graduation from the University of Kent in Canterbury Cathedral earlier this year. I think this is down to the post highlighting both the past and future. I speak about my time at the University of Kent where I graduated online during the pandemic, as well as my future plans to begin a research internship in Berlin, Germany.❞
