Before taking on this role Anouk worked as a post-doctoral researcher in the Parasites & Vectors division of the Natural History Museum (NHM) of London. Her research on schistosomiasis involved regularly travelling to Tanzania to collect schistosome and snail samples for genetic analysis and for archiving in the Schistosomiasis Collection at the NHM (SCAN). Particularly passionate about public outreach and engagement with science she blogs, tweets and talks about parasites and neglected tropical diseases.
