Early Career Panellist: Louise Corscadden


PhD Student, University of Leicester, UK

Louise, upon entering the third and final year of her PhD is filled with tentative excitement for the future. The topic of her work is how air pollution affects bacterial behavior. Before taking her PhD position at the University of Leicester, she completed a Master’s degree in Medical Microbiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and a Bsc in Biomedical Sciences at St George’s University of London (both UK). When not in the lab, she can be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen or sewing something outrageous. You can contact Louise on Twitter or via my email address, lc378@leciester.ac.uk.
