Iveta obtained a Chemistry degree from the University of Southampton in 2015, with a focus on physical and biological chemistry. As part of her MChem, she undertook a 6-month industrial placement working on Raman microscopy in Renishaw plc, Gloucestershire. She then worked as a teaching fellow for the interdisciplinary Natural Sciences programme at the University of Southampton, before beginning her PhD at King's Department of Physics in 2017.


Iveta's research uses fluorescence microscopy (TIRF, FLIM) and environmentally-sensitive dyes to study cell lipid composition. In her third year she was awarded an NPIF funding to undertake an industrial placement with 3i Ltd, where she worked on image analysis of light sheet data. During her PhD, Iveta has picked up a great interest in software development and data analysis, and hopes to utilise these skills to contribute to the scientific community after her PhD.
