Bio: Lucy has not yet escaped the beauty of Cardiff University, having spent 4 years of undergraduate study here and has now committed another 4 years to a PhD. She received her BSc in Biomedical Sciences (Neuroscience) and spent a year on placement in the Brain Repair Group fascinated with research of neurodegenerative disorders, but particularly found herself engrossed in the less-acknowledged psychiatric symptoms in these disorders. On the pursuit to understand psychiatric symptoms, she started a PhD in Behavioural Neuroscience as a part of the BBSRC SWBio DTP, studying the neurobiology underpinning isolated symptoms of psychiatric disorders, in collaboration with Bristol University.

On the unlikely occasion you can’t find her in the lab, she is most likely running to catch a train, strolling around Cardiff Bay or watching some tacky TV shows. She is also involved with several public engagement activities as a member of the PCNS committee and Bioscience Volunteering group.
