Margarita Segovia has been involved with BSA Sheffield since its very foundation and was our branch’s first Volunteer Coordinator. She is still an active member of BSA Sheffield’s volunteer committee, sharing ideas on how to diversify our volunteer base and was also instrumental in establishing our branch’s Social Media Committee. After completing a degree in Biology at the University of Seville (Universidad de Sevilla) in Spain, she specialised in Neuroscience, particularly the use of electrophysiology to better understand cell mechanisms. Until recently, she worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN). She is also a member of the Society of Spanish Researchers in the UK (SRUK), where she acts as co-editor in chief of the SRUK blog and vice-director in the SRUK-Yorkshire group. You can learn more about here on her profile or by following her on Twitter (@marga_segovia).
