Ecology, conservation, science jewellery and fun. www.rebeccanesbit.com
Introduction
I graduated from the University of Durham and then studied for an ecology PhD at Rothamsted Research. I spent my time chasing migrant butterflies in the UK and Gibraltar. I plan to save the world, and am still working out how. In the meantime I write fiction about science and create science jewellery: http://rebeccanesbit.com/sciart/
Bragging rights
I took the train from London to China
