Team Member: Ellie Byass

Ellie joined Phytome Life Sciences to pursue her passion for the sciences. Having initially planned to attend university and study Physical Earth Science; Ellie’s plans were impacted by the pandemic and now she is learning through experiences and opportunity here at Phytome.

Born and bred in Cornwall, her roots run deep as her family once belonged to the farm where the Phytome campus is now located. Ellie is excited to see the estate now as a hub of innovation and research.

Outside work, Ellie enjoys a multitude of sports and outdoor activities. She has been horse riding for over a decade and practices traditional archery on the Lizard Peninsula as well as paddleboarding and kayaking. She loves the outdoors, but mostly exploring coast paths with her dog Nellie.
