#TNGBPeople: Emma Rondinella


Emma tells us about her love of experiencing different cultures and her fascination with molecular science as part of our celebrating women in science series.


What are your interests and what drew you to science? 

I grew up in a small village in Italy but was always interested in living abroad and experiencing new cultures. I am also fascinated by how the world around me works at a molecular level and so that's why was drawn to genetics and chemistry.

What route did you take to your current role as laboratory technician?

I studied Biology, Chemistry and Maths at A-Level and found out about the opportunity at Trouw Nutrition via 6th form careers advisor. Since last August I have been working on the NIR analysing forage samples and I hope to move on to learn some of the vitamin, wet chemical and enzyme techniques. 

What advice would you give to someone interested in a career in science? 

Follow what you enjoy and put effort into whatever interests you.

Have the confidence to believe in yourself.
