Why Rebecca works for Substance

I am passionate about research that can help to give young people the best start in life. After finishing my undergraduate degree, I knew I wanted to continue working in research. I was drawn to Substance as it has a strong focus on delivering applied research that has a real world impact. Outside of work I enjoy baking and reading 19th century literature.
