Since leaving CHS Rachel completed a BSc in Zoology at Nottingham University and an MSc at Bangor University. She is currently in her first year of a PhD at University of Lancaster.
Her passion is marine biology and she has been on an expedition with Operation Wallacea in Utila, Honduras and worked in the Cayman Islands conducting lionfish density surveys to address lionfish density and abundance in relation to management efforts. In addition she undertakes outreach work with schools.
She has been asked to speak at the European Coral Reef Symposium, and has even struck up regular correspondence with Sir David Attenborough, receiving handwritten letters from the gentleman himself!
