I’m originally, from Dundrum in Dublin. I left for college in Cork and studied environmental science and ecology but it wasn’t my first choice.

It was random, but I am so glad of it. I really liked science in school. The school syllabus at the time it did not have a huge focus on ecology. I always liked nature and being outside but I never put two and two together. I was like, “Oh environmental science that will be a grand back up”, but I found it fascinating from day one of college.
