Firstly thanks for taking the time to learn a bit more about the person behind 'ResearcherLucy'.
I'll keep it short and sweet, I'm 27 from the UK and a Writer x Producer x Host for ResearcherLucy in all of its neon formats, because who said science has to fit a mould?
By day I'm a full-time Scientific Content Producer for an International Journal and by night you'll likely find me with my cat.
You can read my full story below.
I won't give you the classic "I always wanted to be a Scientist" story, because quite frankly I didn't. My family has always been a little crazy and we often found ourselves talking about our views of the scientific world. "Lucy, have you heard about stem cells?” “What do you about animal testing?” “Lucy, have you seen they can do this in the lab now?”
So I guess it'll come as no surprise that science, in all its forms, has always been a point of fascination for me.
From viruses to venereology, algedonics to astronomy the more obscure the topic the better.
I studied Biomedical Science at University and went on to become a Biomedical Scientist in an NHS laboratory. Missing out some of the less interesting details in the middle I now work as a Scientific Content Producer at an international journal. Its such a privilege to be a science communicator for work and play. Let me tell you, when I landed my current job I cried tears of joy - I often pinch myself just to make sure I'm not dreaming!
By night I am the founder, host and producer of a science podcast that aims to help you discover your love for science and learn something along the way. You can find a direct link to my podcast below if you want to take a listen.
Science communication runs through my veins as strong as my blood, so if you have a story you think I should write about on here or cover on my podcast, let's connect!
