My name is Natalie Grefenstette. I am French and American and have lived in London for 10 years where I got my BSc in Biochemistry and PhD in Organic Chemistry (or more specifically Prebiotic Chemistry), both from UCL. I've wanted to do research in Astrobiology since I was about 10 so my inner child is very happy.
I love learning and trying new things, from expanding my general science knowledge to things like woodworking, designing, sewing, and baking. In a past life I've also co-founded a start-up and sang Jazz professionally.
My last words will be "How hard can it be?" (while finding out it was, indeed, hard)
