Thomas Williams

Second Year Medical Student, Hull York Medical School

Hi, I'm Thomas (or Tom)  I'm a second year medical student studying at Hull York Medical School (HYMS). So far, the course has been great and I have really enjoyed meeting lots of new people. My research project focuses around an area of biology I have found super interesting since joining medical school - the blood and the immune system! As well as my studies, I am a Choral Singer for Hull Minster where I sing a whole range of music, as well as performing with other various music groups in the Yorkshire Area. I am also in training to be an operational First Aider for St. John Ambulance.  In terms of the future, my plans aren't completely set in stone yet - I'm open to many new experiences before I make that decision. If you have any questions for me, I would love for you to get in contact :)

I'm in my third year of studying biology at the University of York, after taking a paleobiology tutorial on a whim last year I have found myself completely indulged in this area of biology, and it has formed the basis of my research project. After spending my gap-year volunteering with endangered species around the world, I take particular interest in issues surrounding biodiversity loss and species protection.

Ellesha Fielding

Student, University of York

Hello! My name is Ellesha, I am studying Natural Sciences specialising in Chemistry at the University of York, pursuing an MChem. With a background in Biology and Environment, I am very interested in organic chemistry with medicinal applications, and chemistry with applications in mitigating climate change and promoting sustainable living. I believe the purpose of scientific research is to improve lives and that science is of paramount importance in achieving a sustainable, equal future. My research project studies the effects of enhanced mineral weathering on leachate pH and metal concentrations, soil microbial activity, and plant growth, as a potential geoengineering method utilised to mitigate the effects of climate change. I am very happy to connect with people with similar interests and to respond to any questions!

An aspiring Clinical Psychologist, currently an undergraduate studying Psychology (Integrated MSci) at the University of York. I see a future in which mental healthcare is adaptive to an individual's cultural and personal needs. I am also interested in alternative/ complimentary therapies for treatment resistant mood disorders such as deep brain stimulation and psilocybin therapy. My current research involves working with a Prosopagnosic (face blind) individual to better understand how we both learn and recognise faces. Outside of research, I love to go wild swimming across Yorkshire whatever the weather. You will likely find me at a music festival over the summer or travelling to somewhere new!
