I am a Neuroscience masters student and a graduate scientist. I like to make learning more fun and interactive by using diagrams and flow charts where relevant. I also try to find context in everything to allow for a better understanding and quicker learning.
I have not done official teaching but I have mentored 3 biology A level students, 2 maths A level students and 1 chemistry A level student. All students were at C level or below and achieved B or above after a few weeks of tutoring sessions.
I am undertaking an MSc in Clinical Neuroscience which I will finish in August and graduated with a degree in Biomedical Sciences and therefore have spent a significant amount of time in labs learning and practicing research techniques and procedures.
My areas of interest are anxiety/depression, psychosis, Parkinson's, drugs of abuse, neurodegeneration and early intervention or prevention techniques.
I have spent some time in a Neuro ward at a community hospital where I was able to see the implications of the work that is done in labs.
I wrote an Extended Project at A level about the prevention of psychosis and whether that will ever be an option.
In my third year at undergraduate, the modules I chose were: Neuroscience of sensation and perception, Psychology and psychiatry of the mind, and Clinical neuroscience.
As part of my undergraduate course, I have done several self-study projects, writing essays about cell senescence in terms of skin ageing, SAHE as a treatment for mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE), cutting edge treatments for adult amblyopia and finally, societal changes that would increase population resilience against psychological disorders.
I spent some time in labs doing Western blots and working on TLR2 and TLR4 in lung epithelia.
I had the opportunity to observe a stroke model in rat brain slices for a few days (fast cyclic voltammetry).
I completed my third year research project and written a dissertation on the potential use of planaria in the early stages of neuropharmacological research. I am now expanding my research in this field in my MSc project using mass spectrometry to measure neurotransmitter changes in planaria. If all goes well, we hope to publish the findings from my research this year.
As part of my MSc, I have written reviews on the recent theories behind depression and the role of the immune response in depression. I was also part of a larger group that carried out HPLC on lesioned rat striata to determine changes in dopamine (Parkinson's model).
I play the piano and have passed grade 6 ABRSM.
I have a Bronze and Silver DofE award from my time at school and college.
I ran several weekly mentoring sessions from year 11 till the beginning of my time at university in different subjects, mainly Maths and Biology.
Bohunt School 2009 – 2011 I achieved high scores in 11 GCSE’s including:
English-A, Maths-A*, Biology-A, Chemistry-A*
Alton College 2011 – 2013 Maths-B, Biology-A, Chemistry-B, French-A, Extended Project Qualification-B
St. George’s University 2013 – 2016 2:2 BSc (Hons)
Roehampton University 2016 – 2017 On track for a distinction and a publication if all goes to plan
Haslemere Community Hospital 2012 - 2013 Volunteer (HCA)
I observed and helped with the care of elderly patients and attended handover meetings to learn more about the cases and treatment courses of the patients.
St. George’s University of London 2014 Volunteer (Research Assistant)
I worked alongside an MRes student in carrying out Western blots which complemented the research carried out by his supervisor.
Streatham Hill Group Practice 2016 - Note summariser (/Admin)
I received medical records belonging to newly registered patients as well as recent clinical letters from hospitals regarding their referrals. I updated each patients medical record on the computer system with any relevant information.
