Valerie joined MMR in 2014, following studies in Zoology and Food Science. She works hard on the everyday aspects of research projects, writing questionnaires, checking data pulling the story out and preparing reports.

She hankers for her gap year days, spent backpacking through the Bolivian rainforest for Inti Wara Yassi, but these days enjoys more sedate and tick-free travel experiences visiting friends and relatives. She's a little bit crafty, working on everything from costumes to crochet and jewellery.
