Louise pursued her passion for science by studying for a BSc (Hons) Biochemistry degree at Sheffield Hallam University, where she gained a first class degree. As part of her degree, Louise did a placement year at Sanofi Aventis and worked in the Bioanalysis department. It was at Sanofi that Louise discovered a love for mass spectrometry and working in the laboratory.
After completing her undergraduate degree, Louise moved to Scotland to undertake her postgraduate MSc by Research degree. The focus of Louise’s research investigated the cause of Type 2 Diabetes by researching how cyclin dependant kinase 5 targeted PPAR gamma. She looked into not only CDK5 and PPAR gamma, but also how the rest of the CMCG kinase family interacted with PPAR gamma.
After completing her postgraduate degree, Louise has worked in both the pharmaceutical industry and academia. She followed her passion for mass spectrometry by working in both a bioanalysis department, as well as being the mass spectrometry technician for the University of Edinburgh.
Louise first started out by writing about video games and comics, before moving into science writing. As well as writing features and news, Louise has travelled internationally to cover events and carry out interviews. After working for a couple of companies, Louise decided to pursue her passion of freelance writing, which is when she joined the AZo team.
Louise’s expert areas are not only in biochemistry, but also Analytical Chemistry. She has a passion for writing about all things spectrometry and spectroscopy related, as well as writing about the latest breaking science news.
Outside of work, Louise trains in Shodokan Aikido and competes as part of the British team. She has travelled all over the world competing for Great Britain and has successfully medalled at both European and World Championship competitions.

AZoMining speaks to Philip Gross, CEO of Snow Lake Lithium, about the development of the world's first electric lithium mine. This is a particularly important development within mining and highlights the significance of accelerating green mining across the world.
Prof. James Tour
AZoMining speaks with James Tour from Rice University about his team's exciting method that has the very real potential to recover valuable REE from three types of waste; electronic waste, coal fly ash and bauxite residue.
Craig Liddicoat from Flinders University speaks to AZoMining about his team's work on effective rehabilitation in post-mining ecosystems and whether it can set up a predictable trajectory of recovery. We also ask why ecosystem recovery is important in mining operations and the current limitations af
