David Allsop

David gained his PhD from the University of Dundee in 2017 and is now a post-doc, still working in Scotland.

He also really enjoys science communication- particularly writing, aimed at audiences of all types. He hopes people find his pieces at BitesizeBio useful or interesting, and preferably both!
