My name is Lizzy, and I live in London with my boyfriend/photographer Chris and two carnivorous plants (cheaper to keep than a cat) in a house that creaks under the weight of my shoe collection.
In real life I am a biologist: I completed my PhD in 2013 (Dr. Lizzy, ooh-er!), and I work as a Policy and Communications Officer for a London-based science communciation organisation. I am incurably curious, capable of asking endless questions ranging from the sensible to the obscure, and will happily engage in passionate debate on any topic, from the principles of evolution to obscure points of science policy.
I started writing ScientistChic to explore and share the other great passion of my life: clothes. Reading about them, buying them, finding them second hand, making them. Oh, and wearing them, obviously. I am addicted to hunting down designer labels in my local charity shops – recent gems include Furla and Maje - and I am frequently overdressed. This is a valid lifestyle choice.
Fancy a chat about fashion, life, the universe or even evolutionary biology?
