After a number of holiday positions in the group I’m happy to say that Jessie clearly has the perservance required for scientific research (!) and undeterred is back for more.
She was awarded the IFS John Ayres summer scholarship in 2012 and obtained her Honours degree in 2013. To continue her passion for pectin, Jess is starting her PhD with us (on Massey scholarship!!) in Feb 2014. She’s also known as the Queen of the banana cake and she just loves pectin (and NMR)!
