Matilda Handsley-Davis just completed Honours in microbial genetics (*UPDATED FOR 2020* now nearing the end of her PhD!), and loves history, art, and biology. She’s been described as a Renaissance woman, which she doesn’t exactly object to. Her other main claim to fame is her painfully adorable pet toy poodle, who has her own Instagram fan base.
Favourite podcast: I don’t listen to many, but I’ve recently been enjoying the Myths and Legends podcast! (*UPDATED FOR 2020* I am a complete podcast fiend these days!! My favourites include You’re Wrong About, Witch Please, The SSR Podcast and Science Vs! I also enjoy a bunch of ABC Radio podcasts like Classic Flow, Ladies We Need To Talk, Science Friction, and The Minefield. On second thoughts, don’t get me started on podcasts)
Favourite food: I have a huge sweet tooth, so it probably has to be some form of chocolate! I made some Nutella and salted caramel filled double chocolate cookies recently that were pretty amazing.
