It’s been exactly two years since I completed my PhD on Tuesday, January 15th, 2013.
Since then some things have changed, some have not. I swapped the bench for outreach; the microscope for Twitter; pipettes for YouTube. Although I no longer do research in a lab, my love for discovery and learning remains the same.
Today instead of thinking about experiments with worms and microscopes I think about how to make science matter to people. Instead of generating knowledge, I share it. I have a different role in the process of science.
