Jack Hirst, PhD student in the Hutchinson Lab, studying influenza virus morphology. He grew up in Tadcaster in North Yorkshire and studied Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, mostly focusing on cell and developmental biology. Jack’s been interested in evolutionary arms races since he first saw Blue Planet, and hooked on host-virus coevolution since deciding it was the most interesting example. When not in the lab or producing podcasts, Jack enjoys live music and pub quizzes.
