Heather Britton graduated from Cambridge University in 2017 with a Master’s in Natural Sciences, specialising in Earth Sciences. Since then she has spent time working with a UK energy company and am now employed by the Civil Service on their science and engineering fast stream graduate scheme.

I first became involved with GfGD in September 2017 and continue to enjoy writing posts on a monthly basis for the charity’s blog.
