Serinde is the project manager of the Sêr Cymru National Research Network for Low Carbon, Energy and Environment. After completing a 5-year degree in marine, theoretical and evolutionary biology at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands, she came to Bangor University to pursue a PhD in fisheries genetics. Her main driver in science has always been the wider applicability of research, and after successfully completing her PhD she decided not to become a specialist in a specific area, but rather she enjoys being involved with a wide diversity of environmental and biological research. Past responsibilities developing the impact component of the University’s Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 submission have allowed her to gain a broad overview of research activities at Bangor University and created further enthusiasm for interdisciplinary research and the impact of science. As project manager for the NRN-LCEE, Serinde enjoys broadening her scope to energy and environment research across Wales, and working with researchers across a range of disciplines, helping to develop (training) opportunities and facilitating wider applications for new research.
