Founder and Podcast Co-Host
Victoria is Founder of Researc/hers Code and is a bioinformatics PhD student at the Centre for Host-Microbiome Interactions, King’s College London. She uses big data, high-performance computing and computational genomics to understand and combat the spread of antimicrobial resistance. She is also a Biotech consultant and has worked in the AdTech sector as a data scientist.
After finishing her Physics degree at Imperial College London, Noemi is now doing a PhD at UCL developing novel microstructural imaging techniques using MRI. Noemi works with Monte Carlo simulations and deep learning algorithms, and also scan brains at Great Ormond Street Hospital. In her free time she enjoys a range of activities including hiking, reading and teaching math.
Dr Flavia Flaviani
Flavia is a bioinformatician with a biological background. She has a PhD in Molecular and Cellular biology from the University of Cape Town (South Africa) that focused on Illumina Next generation sequencing. Flavia started coding during her MSc and fell in love with it so much so that is now an integral part of her day to day job. She believes that we should do our best to empower young women as well as anyone that does not have the opportunity to learn to code and give everyone the same chance.
Olatz is a PhD student researching the gene-environment interplay and how they shape our health at the Department of Twin Research and Genetic Epidemiology, KCL. Her aim is to design the most suitable diet for everyone depending on their genes. During her free time she enjoys cycling around London, bargain shopping at the weekends, and coffee.
Laura is a Developmental Neuroscience PhD student at the Institute of Child Health, UCL. She scans brains at the Great Ormond Street Hospital and is working to obtain high-resolution diffusion imaging of the human hippocampus. Outside of her PhD, she enjoys swimming, gaming and is also a keen yogi.
Neelu is a Systems Biology PhD student at the Centre for Host-Microbiome Interactions, King's College London. She has a background in biology and is currently working on fungal metabolism using high-performance computation and bioinformatics. She has a passion for diversity and empowering women in STEM.
Stephanie is a Policy Advisor in the UK Civil Service. Her background combines an LLM in International Law with operational policing experience and a passion for digital transformation. She believes in the power of harnessing data ethically to deliver a more evidence based, cost effective and high quality service for the public. She is also keen to see young people and those from disadvantaged backgrounds equipped with coding and the right digital skills to thrive in today’s society and create a more equitable tomorrow.
