1. Introduce yourself, who are you what do you do? I’m a 4th year Neuroscience PhD student at Baylor College of Medicine and a happy member of the Daoyun Ji lab. I study the neuroplasticity underlying contextual fear memory in the schaffer collateral synapse in mice via tetrode recording. In other words, I study the changes in specific connections in a region of the brain called the hippocampus (i.e. region highly implicated...
1. Introduce yourself, who are you what do you do? Hey, I’m Sarah. I’m a post-doc researcher working on the genetics of neuromuscular diseases. These are really debilitating diseases of the nerve and muscle that impair movement, and are often fatal. Finding the causative mutation is really important for helping the patients and their families get the best care and discovering new treatments. I also work at a national...
1. Introduce yourself, who are you, what do you do? Hello! My name is Ying Wan Loh and I am a manufacturing engineer. I have worked for Rolls-Royce in the civil aerospace division and soon to be joining McKinsey Operations as a junior specialist in manufacturing.

1. Introduce yourself, who are you, what do you do? Hi, I am Laila Linke. I am a PhD student in astrophysics at the University of Bonn. My research interest lies in cosmology, which is the science of the origin and evolution of the Universe and its main components, such as the mysterious dark matter. I analyze data from gravitational lensing - a process by which dark matter changes the images of galaxies and from this hope to learn...
1. Introduce yourself, who are you what do you do? Hi, I’m Dr. Nikki Buckner. I recently completed my PhD in Neuroscience at the University of Bristol, UK.During my PhD, I used molecular biology to study what happens inside brain cells which die in neurodegenerative illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease. I now work for the NHS (the National Health Service in the UK), in a Clinical Genetics Laboratory. I am a Genetic...

1. Introduce yourself, who are you what do you do? Hi! I’m Yasha Duggal, a chemistry PhD student at Penn State University. I study how bacteria talk with each other and their environment through small molecules. 2. How did you arrive at this career (or point in your life/work)? Was it always something you knew you wanted to do? This was not something I always wanted to do! When I started college I was a premed and...
1. Introduce yourself, who are you what do you do? I am an evolutionary biologist currently completing a PhD; I work in experimental evolutionary ecology, using fruit flies. That means I design experiments to see how evolution might drive changes we see in flies. Right now, I am giving flies different combinations of diets and monitoring their fitness and the fitness of their offspring. 2. How did you arrive at this career (or...
1. Introduce yourself, who are you what do you do? I am Seema Saharan, currently a Project Contributor at Student CodeIn. I am in my final year of BTech in Computer Science and Engineering. Apart from this, I am working on some side projects, exploring new technology every day. I was recently a speaker at Cloud Community Days on the topic of “ The World of Containers with Podman, Buildah, Skopeo ”. I have been...
1. Introduce yourself, who are you what do you do? I’m Sofia. I head a small research team at the MDC in Berlin that use computational methods and high-throughput sequencing to understand health and disease, especially how interactions between human host and gut microbiota interact to affect this. 2. How did you arrive at this career (or point in your life/work)? Was it always something you knew you wanted to do? I...
1. Introduce yourself, who are you what do you do? Hi, I'm Dr Zoë Ayres - I am a research scientist in the water industry.
