About the speaker
Iona is a designer by training (MA Design Products, RCA) but as a science and data geek at heart, is forging her career in the cross section of these fields.
After university, Iona worked as a designer in the genetic technology sector and found her skill set to be the perfect tool for consumer engagement in science. In December 2015 Iona set up Dot One, a company which produces DNA personalised products as a way of getting genetics out of the lab and into the public domain in a fun and accessible way.
With no formal scientific background Iona was delighted to be selected as one of the 2017 Progress 1000’s ‘Top influencers in London’ in the Science and Technology category.
When she can escape from London, Iona dedicates time to her other loves, exploration and dogs; training huskies in the Finnish Arctic.
