I’m a 27-year old female biochemist who recently moved to the UK for an adventure as postdoc. You can read here what a trockeneisbombe is, although I have decided to change the name of my blog from Trockeneisbombe to Dr.K.
Why this blog?
Initially, I thought I’d like to share insights about the scientific world with the outside world. They are, after all, those who pay for it – and benefit from it in the long run. Directly caused by my PhD defense, where most of my family and friends had no clue what it is all about and I had to conclude I am really bad at explaining what I do… I figured that through a blog, I might practice a little and improve!
But during the year I’ve had this blog, I discovered that I also like to discuss current events in academia. As well as describe some of my ways to deal with publishing, presentations, grant writing and so on. Maybe others can learn from the mistakes I made, or get some new ideas from my good practices. To be able to browse the blog efficiently, I’ve generated a page listing some of the most interesting posts.
