I am a PhD student, biotech researcher, and science communicator.
Growth as a STEM grad student requires a lot of reading. I’m able to track many of these papers and what I’ve learned from them here.
This is also a student life blog. That means science, graduate life, study tips, the after-college job hunt, and a few random topics in the name of work/life balance.
