Welcome, guys! I thought I should do a quick introduction. My name is Amber (she/her). I am a PhD researcher and graduate teaching assisstant at The University of Sheffield.

In the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering I am honoured to currently hold the role of President of GRAND (Graduate Researcher And Network Development).

I am also a competitive swimmer. I’ve swam for GBR a few times, including winning a European Junior silver medal. Now, I swim at the City of Sheffield, I’m sponsored by Neil Ednie and model for BeU.

I also have another exciting role – I am TASS’ Athlete Advisory Group Chair (more about this in Experiences and in future posts…)
