I am in the third year of a PhD in Biomedical Sciences (Integrative Physiology). When I am not in the lab, I enjoy experimenting with different recipes in the kitchen, practicing yoga (there's nothing like a good downward-facing dog!) and travelling when I can.

I am a third year PhD student on the Tissue Repair programme specialising in Reproductive Health. I studied in Edinburgh to gain my Bachelor's degree in Medical Sciences and loved the Uni and city so much I decided to stay on for my further research. Outside of the lab I enjoy socialising with my friends, salsa dancing, dabbling in sports such as Tennis and swimming and have recently started baking as a hobby! My blog takes you through the major challenges I have faced so far, will give you a brief idea of what goes on in the life of a PhD student and how I keep busy in my spare time. I hope you enjoy the read!!!
