I work as a content creator for Khan Academy. Most recently I worked on creating the interactive elements for their partnerships with NASA and Pixar. I have also worked as an IT consultant for a logistics firm, writing code to generate images of different package options. And I have worked on a couple of cryptocurrency projects.

Where to find me
My background is in molecular biology. I did an undergraduate Masters degree in Biochemistry (MBioch) at Oxford University. I also did a PhD in Pathology at Oxford University. My research was on metabolic enzymes in the flagellum a trypanosome (a parasite which cause human African trypanosomiasis). I then did a postdoc at the Marine Biological Association in Plymouth, researching calcium regulation in the flagella of the green algae, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.
