Most Rewarding Aspect of being on the Stu Brew Committee:
Being on committee has really expanded my horizons in terms of what people in different degree disciplines get up to inside and outside the lab. I’ve learnt all sorts of things from my tenure at Stu Brew, including risk management, brewing, and even the odd chemical process.
Why did you get involved with Stu Brew?
Stu Brew had been on my radar since second year, but I wasn’t sure how to make my undergraduate degree relevant to it – after all, actually I love what I study, so more opportunities to use it is a win-win for me. Towards the end of my second year I saw a role for Quality Analyst appear on Facebook, so I decided that that would be a perfect entry point for me. I was then put into a specialised Microbial Analyst role to take advantage of my training in Microbiology, and the rest is history.
Favourite Stu Brew Beer:
Vanilla Milk Stout.
Fun Fact about yourself:
I released an album with my band in 2014.
