Talking Biology Careers

Mrs Cassells’ biologists and some of the environmental scientists were joined by Dr. Lloyd Potts, a microbiologist involved in exploration and production at Intertek. Lloyd discussed his journey from sixth form to university and beyond with the students, really highlighting how a plan doesn’t always run smoothly and how a career pathway can emerge by following the topic areas that you love and working hard. He also discussed some of his own, published research – some of which looks at using different species of bacteria to aid the clean up / degradation of different types of oil.
