Emma grew up on the sunny Suffolk coast, where she came to faith through supportive Christian parents and a wonderful Bible-teaching church. After finishing school, she moved to Cambridge to study Natural Sciences, specialising in Biochemistry. The highlight of her time at uni was getting involved in the Christian Union, which gave her a passion for seeing students come to know Christ!
After graduating she joined the Relay programme, working alongside students in Cambridge and Bedfordshire to take the gospel out to their universities. Having loved getting involved in several research projects during her degree, she was planning a career in the lab until a position with Science Network came up, allowing her to combine her love for science with her enthusiasm for helping students meet Jesus! She finds great joy in seeing science being used for the glory of God, and students learning to connect their faith with their studies. As well as science, she loves analysing popular culture, baking for friends and going for long runs beside the river
