Lara Lalemi is a London-born researcher at the University of Bristol. Drawn to the world of environmental research and climate change Lara, upon receiving an MSci degree, took to completing a doctorate in Chemistry – specialising in Aerosol Science. She has expertise in using a variety of single particle measuring techniques, characterising the microscopic properties of aerosol droplets such as viscosity and surface tension.

Through her work at the university, she delivers an undergraduate optional unit ‘Big Ideas’ to tackle ideas around inclusivity in science, communication and the influence of science on society through topics such as decolonisation. Along with 14 other brilliant academics and students from universities across the UK, Lara pioneered the Decolonising the Science Curriculum Working Group. The group develop and deliver bespoke workshops that introduce the idea of decolonisation to early researchers, academics and heads of schools.

Currently, Lara is the CEO of Creative Tuition Collective, a non-for-profit community organisation, which is striving to increase opportunities for young people from lower income and underrepresented backgrounds within STE(Arts)M.
