About Us

Mikkaila

The kotikoulu coordinator. Before switching to research she worked as a cookery and chemistry teacher in an 11-18 school in south London and she has experience tutoring to undergraduate level. When allowed outside she does outreach across London and beyond, from workshops on the science of food to talks on women and diversity in science. 

Sophie

The kotikoulu tech wizz. When she isn't throwing her mighty mind into coding and web app development she can be found cooking or getting her government mandated exercise on two wheels. She has experience private tutoring and university demonstrating and when free to roam takes part in outreach events. 

Both Mikkaila & Sophie are computational chemistry PhDs at Imperial College London.
