Beth obtained a BA in Biological Sciences from Oxford University specialising in Animal and Environmental Biology. She then went on to study for a PGCE in Primary Education at Oxford Brookes.
Beth is currently a Lecturer in Biological Sciences at Jesus College.
She is now engaged in a Leverhulme Trust funded DPhil collaboration with Oxford University’s Engineering Department, looking at the high impact effects on silks.
Beth uses techniques more commonly found in the physical sciences to answer biological questions. She is particularly interested in how silks are suited for impact and sound propagation.
She collaborates with the University of Strathclyde looking at silk vibration.
