Degree: Biomedical Science (Integrative Mammalian Biology) (Masters) - Glasgow University
Since a young age, I've been fascinated by the magic that goes on to make our body's work - of course, I now know it's not magic but in fact science. Along with my extensive knowledge of biological science subjects, I have a great passion and enthusiams for teaching and sharing this knowledge.
Currently, I am heavily engaged in research opportunities made available through my Masters degree, and in my spare time I am a visiting lecturer at Queen Margaret University delivering lectures in pharmacology and biological sciences to students on the Pharmacology, Human Biology, and Nutrition degree programmes.
My current tutoring through MyTutor encompases Biology based subjects across varing curriculum programmes as well as Personal Statement mentoring.
After graduating from Queen Margaret University with a First Class Honours degree (top of year) in Applied Pharmacology, I am now a Masters of Research student at Glasgow University studying Biomedical Science with a specialism in Mammalian Biology. This MRes will allow me to gain the skills necessary to develop a career in stroke research and neuroscience.
During my undergraduate degree, my enthusiasm and fascination for biology and pharmacology really showed, earning me recognition within the field of human biology and pharmacology by way of a membership to the Royal Society of Biology. I achieved this through my contributions to teaching and public demonstrations of cardiovascular physiology during open days, school visits, and science festivals.
I have a true passion for teaching and inspiring other students in the field of biology - as it's a subject that truely captures my imagination. Looking to the future, I hope to one day be a lecturer in the field of biological sciences.

Red blood cells are vital for us to stay alive as they carry out an extremely important role in our body - oxygen transport. Red blood cells are the carrier of oxygen around our body in the blood stream, and the mechanism by which our organs, muscles, and tissues get the supply of oxygen they need to function.
Red blood cells are able to carry oxygen because of a special protein called haemoglobin. The haemoglobin is present throughout the red blood cell, giving it its characteristic red colour. The red blood cell itself is concave in shape, similar to a doughnut but without the hole going all the way through. This gives the red blood cell greater surface area allowing it to carry more oxygen. Its shape also allows it to fit through narrow capillaries and blood vessels in our body. It's important to note that red blood cells have no nucleus, but they have a cell membrane - a very thin cell membrane! This allows easy diffusion of oxygen into oxygen-poor environments where the oxygen is needed.see more
