Hailing from Dominica, Joseph holds a BSc in Chemistry and Mathematics and an MPhil in Chemistry from University of the West Indies, Barbados. She then completed a PhD in Chemistry at the University of Cambridge and is currently a Junior Research Fellow in Physical and Chemical Sciences at King's College, Cambridge. Her research encompasses developing multiscale modelling approaches to study how the cell organises its contents via liquid-liquid phase separation and examining the role of this process in biological function and malfunction.
Alongside her research, Joseph is the founder of CariScholar, an organisation that connects Caribbean students to professionals and academics in their field of study. Joseph was awarded the Bill Gates Sr. Prize in 2018 for her excellent academic work and her commitment to service. Joseph strongly believes that greater representation of Black people in STEM is vital as it not only helps diversify science faculty, but will also diversify the problems investigated, the techniques used, and ultimately improve the quality of science produced.
