Jassel Majevadia, born in 1986 in London, is a science communicator and final year PhD student in Imperial College’s Department of Physics, focusing on the ‘multiscale modelling of precipitates in zircaloy cladding’ involved in nuclear energy safety. Her grandmother emigrated from Uganda and her grandfather from Indian communities in Kenya in the 1960s. Following secondary and further education at aselective grant-maintained school in Essex, Jassel read physics at the University of St Andrews, Fife, Scotland. Winning a Bobby Jones Scholarship to Emory University, Atlanta, US, Jassel studied jazz music (and other subjects) for a year, then returned to the UK in to begin a PhD at Imperial College.
