It's our pleasure to introduce Elly Nuttall.
Elly just completed her bachelor's & master's in chemistry at the University of Leeds in the UK. Her masters project was focused on using terahertz (THz) radiation to analyse a number of different liquids. She enjoyed the research so much that she applied to do a PhD to continue researching the use of THz radiation with more of an engineering focus and got it! In her PhD, she will be creating a THz spectrometer that is cheap and compact and so accessible for universities/ companies to use worldwide.
She will then be using this spectrometer to try and understand some fundamental atmospheric processes. She started her instagram a few months ago because she wanted to document the day to day life of an engineering phd student. She is a big advocate for women in stem- only 20% of engineering graduates are women (in the UK) and she really want to play a part in breaking the norm that being an engineer is for men only!
She also wanted to get out there that you don't have to be naturally gifted to do science. She continuously got B's through school and never did maths or physics past secondary school and look at me now! Hard work and determination paid off for her.
We welcome you to the Addictive Brain community, and we look forward to reading your contributions.

Greetings. My name is Demarre Evans (@demarre.evans13). I am a sophomore at Kent State University studying chemistry, computer science, and physics. Science has been a huge part of my life ever since I was little. To me science is more than what is taught in lecture halls or what happens in labs. Science is the driving force behind imagination, creativity, and a world of endless possibilities thus why I am studying it.
I am really interested in computational chemistry/physics (hence the insanity that is my academic life) and eventually would like to pursue my Ph.D in ChemE. I truly just like computers and the idea of being able to use a computer to conduct research in ways other than going go Wikipedia for whatever answers we are looking for.
This past summer, I was able to start working in a research lab through the NSF REU program. I worked with Dr. Chris Fenk @ Kent State on a project based around using cell phones as spectrophotometers. We were looking to effectively get spectroscopic data in a way that is comparable to lab grade equipment and beneficial low income schools and developing countries. This opportunity was one of the best things I have ever experienced and I hope to continue researching in the future.
Other than science, my primary interest are playing music and dancing. The arts are a great outlet of expression for all platforms which I why I enjoy it. I personally use it to express myself (follow @demarreevans.music to follow all my musical adventures) but it can also have a role in sciences, giving me a reason to love the addition of the letter A to STEM to make it STEAM.
I'd love to contribute to the SciComm outreach as best as possible because it is truly wonderful to have a place for scientist to come together to make a change. Also, I'd love to talk to all of you, so if you have any questions about anything I talked about or just want to say hello, please reach out to me. I love meeting new people 😊
