I’m Emmie, a PhD student studying the evolution and development of memory. I graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2013 with a MSci in Natural Sciences (Biology and Earth Sciences), and now reside in the School of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of St Andrews.

I’m not one of those academics who is very good at writing insightful posts about the world of science. What you will find here instead in my blog are doodles, daft scientific poetry, personal ramblings, very occasional pieces of useful communication about my work, and monkeys.
