Recently completing my PhD has made me reflect on my scientific journey. It has been extraordinary adventure and I have got to experience some amazing places and contribute to the world in a way that I never thought I could. I am proud of how far I have come and have decided to share this as a blog post.
I recently sat down with my friend, roommate and colleague to chat about her journey in science, culminating in her current PhD. Colette Blyth uses genomic analyses of Australian native plants to directly inform conservation. Read all about her story in this blog.
I have been slack on writing blog posts lately. This is mainly because I have been working hard on my PhD, so hard I feel I have lost passion for my work and have found myself wondering why I am doing ocean research in the first place. I decided to slow down and write about what inspired me to dedicate my career to saving our precious ocean environment, spoiler alert! this post is all about seagrass!.
Just 7 hours out of Adelaide you’ll find the Hiltaba Nature Reserve. Run by the Nature Foundation, this perfect piece of paradise is just stunning. I was very lucky to get to travel here and explore the arid landscape, taking in the plant and animal life and snapping some great photographs. Read more to find out about this adventure I had.
