Ellie Kirwan – a natural scientist

Ellie KirwanNews from Eleanor Kirwan (OW 2014) who is a Consumer Healthcare R&D Associate with GlaxoSmithKline on their Future Leaders Programme. This scheme provides a tailored path through a wide range of R&D, manufacturing and operations roles to prepare for a career with this British multinational pharmaceutical company.

Ellie graduated from Cambridge (Gonville & Caius) with a degree in Physical Natural Sciences in 2018. She was university women’s 2s/3s squash team captain and played netball for her college. This was a continuation of her sport at Wells where she played first team netball and was a noted hockey player. She also gained a DoE Gold award.

After Wells, Ellie did a Year in Industry with the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and was a regional finalist in the Contribution to the Business Awards competition.

Ellie can also sing beautifully (so her friends say) and is a trumpet player, though hopefully she did not take it on her OW skiing trip in February!
