My name is Dr. Ruairi Robertson. 10 years ago I wasn’t sure what to study in University. People kept telling me to do what I enjoy. I enjoyed food. So I studied it and haven’t stopped since. 

Since then I have been awarded a:

  • B.Sc in Human Nutrition from University College Dublin (2012)
  • Ph.D in Microbiology from University College Cork (2016)
  • Fulbright Scholar to Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital (2015-2016)
  • Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowship to Queen Mary University of London (2017-2021)
