Summary

 

Summary

Isabella is the Translation and Research Manager of the Institute for Molecular Science and Engineering. She manages the production of the Institute’s Briefing Papers, blog and podcast, and also manages collaborative grant proposal development with industry and other end-users.  

Bio 

Isabella holds a Batchelor’s in Chemistry from UMIST (now part of the University of Manchester) and a PhD in Archaeology from the University of York. Her research focused on isotopic analysis of medieval wool samples, to study trade flows across northern Europe. She pursued this work in a postdoc at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel (Germany) and then switched to forensic applications of the same techniques for another postdoc at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (Netherlands).  

In addition to working in academia, Isabella has also worked in project management and science communication for an independent medical research charity and for the NHS.
