Amber Condell

Hi there! My name is Amber Condell. I’m a third year Bachelor of Genetics student, who has happily been led astray by the fascinating Chemistry and Science Communication courses here at the ANU. 

One day, I hope to become a genetic counsellor or researcher - I’m the kind of person that loves patterns of genetic inheritance and enjoys drawing hypothetical family-tree diagrams for fun. 

In my very rare free time I like to knit, research film and technology history, sing and write sketches for the ANU Science Revue (hopefully) bringing smiles to audiences.
