Rachel Smith



I provide technical support for undergraduate practical classes and research in the School of Biological Sciences. This technical support involves the preparation of the labs, equipment and solutions that are required, as well as helping to demonstrate in classes. I primarily support Zoology classes taking place in the AMS building, as well as providing technical support to the Cole Museum of Zoology.

Career History

Since graduating with a Biology BSc from the University of Southampton in 2013, I have worked as a school Science Technician and as a Maths & English Tutor. In December 2014 I started work at the University of Reading as a Trainee Technician, and in August 2016 I progressed to my role as Technician.


I am a part of the Technical Services Wellbeing group - I enjoy running with the Run/Jog/Walk Club, doing yoga at lunchtimes, as well as baking for any occasion.
