Teacher training – cut short by illness. Managed 6 months before health problems kicked off.
SKE – Physics. Step 1 on becoming a teacher.
Lab Technician Band 4 -Specialist Chromatography. Best job ever, pity about the pay!
Data Provide Coordinator – Office monkey, 3 months temporary hell.
Marketing Assistant – I rather try to frame this as ‘scientific marketing assistant’ because i) most of marketing is BS and ii) its for a biosciences company. It also involves some technical writing. Kicked because I wasn’t sales’ bitch.
PhD Human Genetics – Haplotype Variant Alleles in Type 1 Diabetes. Withdrew due to illness after a year.
Forensic Scientist L2 – Lab Monkey with too much integrity.
BSc Forensic Science – 2.1 Dissertation : “Determination of the Post Mortem Interval by the Chlorosis of Grass”
“Cutting edge hardass internet badass” – some Amazon review idiot. But it does sound good! I am a bit of contrarian towards things that are accepted because they are the ‘popular’ consensus. A bit like marketing this just turns into one big ego-massage which annoys me. As a scientist I take seriously the right to ask ‘why?’ and ‘how?’ of anything.
Scientist – I have a BSc in Forensic Science and worked in a lab along with doing a bit of a PhD before stopping. I’ve always been interested in science and to an extent engineering since being a child. Chemistry and microscopy were my initial loves, but I did Physics at school and then did a degree involving DNA and Chemical analysis.
Geek – D&D, Pokémon TCG & board-games. I’ve had less time for war gaming due to time commitment.
