Michaela Agapiou


Michaela is a PhD student at the University of Leeds, UK, where she studies protein synthesis in the sperm cells of fruit flies. She is currently based in New York City while doing an internship with The Story Collider as part of her PhD programme, having approached them after spending many, many hours listening to podcasts while dissecting fruit fly testes. This is her first job outside of a lab, as she fell in love with science and research at a young age. Michaela hopes to learn more about the art of storytelling and maybe break fewer things than she does inside of the lab. Follow her on Twitter @MichaelaAgapiou
