Meet Emily Pomeroy, who has recently joined the EMBL-EBI Events Team in the role of Events and Marketing Officer for the EMBL-EBI Industry Programme.
At EMBL since: February 2020
Number of organised conferences/courses:
I am looking forward to helping on my first event for the Industry Programme in May this year.
The EMBL-EBI Industry Programme is a subscription-based programme for global companies that make significant use of the data and resources provided by EMBL-EBI as a core part of their R&D. The programme is unique, providing regular quarterly strategy meetings, expert-level workshops on topics prioritised by the members, webinars and other activities.
Favourite place in Hinxton area:
Royston Heath, not too far from Hinxton. A lovely place on a warm sunny afternoon for walking, exploring the woodland with the children and a glass of wine afterwards on the lawn outside the Heath Café Bar.
If you weren’t an events and marketing officer, what would you be?
A travel photographer
What is the strangest/funniest thing that has ever happened in an event you have organised?
In a previous job, my colleagues and I all had to dress up as clowns for a circus themed dinner, then walk through Leeds city centre to add to the embarrassment.
If you were a superhero what power would you like to have?
The power to make my children listen to me!
Favorite food/book/TV show/film.
Thai food is my favourite, I have watched Notting Hill more times than I can count and love reading a good travel journal.
