Bethany Heath has taken photographs for Spotlight Productions for several years and enjoys photographing a range of subjects while at university. She is currently studying for a Masters degree in Mathematics at Durham University. She was awarded a Laidlaw Research and Leadership Scholarship at Durham. As part of this, she has undertaken research on dementia, investigating the link between level of education and the risk of suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Her systematic literature review identified a clear benefit from education, potentially opening the door to the development of brain training applications to reduce the risk of getting the disease.
Bethany sits on the EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) Committee at Durham, and is very keen to encourage more women into maths and science. Bethany is a maths tutor and volunteers at a local Durham school, supporting A-Level Further Maths students. Bethany is currently supporting two orphans, Kelvin and Choolwe, in Zambia through their maths degrees. She does this in the only way possible – using WhatsApp on their mobile phones!
Bethany hopes to undertake a Ph.D in the area of biostatistics with the aspiration of applying statistical analysis in medical research, to help find cures and treatments for the world’s major diseases.
