Summary

Hi, I'm Jasmine, thanks for visiting my profile.

I'm British but I grew up in Rome, Italy and decided to move to London for university. I have always been interested and very curious about the world around me. Ever since I learnt to read, I have bought and treasured a vast collection of books about the sciences. Over time, I developed acute observational skills due to my curiosity. I was inspired to study and specialise in Human Genetics after I read The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins, which made me see that selection acts not just on the level of the individual but the level of the gene, which showed me that genes were even more important that I had realised.

At university for my fourth year research project I worked to identify a gene in the zebrafish genome. It was entitled “Characterisation and Mapping of the Zebrafish G109 mutant”. I successfully applied my knowledge from my lectures to my work in the lab and improved my results. I enjoyed both working in a team and independently whilst writing up my project. I also regularly presented my results to the entire lab during the weekly meetings. By the end I had identified 4 candidate genes for the G109 mutation, drawing new conclusions that will lead onto further research.

I have just graduated with a 2.1 in the Msci Human Genetics degree at UCL. I am currently open to any new opportunities and would love to connect with you.

During my studies I also interned at the Steve Wilson Group at UCL as a laboratory assistant under Dr Rodrigo Young working on zebrafish genetics. I contributed to a research paper entitled “Tcf3a function in eye specification” to be published at the end of 2015/early 2016.

Through this amazing opportunity, I earned valuable laboratory skills. I also have a love for IT and I work as a webmaster part time. I constructed and provide support for two websites for the English Sisters using Wordpress and Genesis.
