I’m Emily. As my title implies, I spend a lot of my time behind the scope.

No, really, a lot…


I’m a soon-to-be fourth year PhD Candidate, attempting (and so far managing?) to stay afloat in the rigorous academic world.

This blog will be a potpourri of sorts: commentary on new papers I’ve read in the field, insight into my hectic daily life, an excuse for me to dive into completely arbitrary topics, you name it!

Why start a blog? Well, as a basic science researcher, I’ve come to realize that there isn’t much that is “basic” about it, and it’s about time I talk about it with people other than my colleagues.

Hope you enjoy. 🙂
