When I’m not doing research, I enjoy writing about science.
I started my blog (disce aut discede – “learn or leave”) when I was Student Ambassador for the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine (CMVM) at the University of Edinburgh (2012 – 2014). It covers research, medical education, and stories from my life as an aspiring clinician-scientist.
I was Editor-in-Chief of my graduate program’s newsletter (Charité NeuroScience) for 2.5 years (I still regularly contribute to it by writing articles and proofreading). The newsletter is written and run entirely by graduate students and is intended for a general science audience. It comes out every three months and covers a wide variety of topics from a neuroscience perspective (for questions, comments, or suggestions: firstname.lastname@example.org)
