Inspiring the next generation?

It’s Open Day season again for Universities.

Normally I steer clear of the day, because I find crowds of people overwhelming. Even during my Ph. D, I’d try to schedule experiments around that weekend, just so I could avoid going in and getting caught up in it all.

Obviously this year the University can’t hold the event like they normally would- stage four restrictions appear likely to remain pretty much until the end of October here in Melbourne. So, this year was a virtual Open Day, using Zoom webinars.

I got invited to be a part of the panel as a student representative for the Major that I completed in my Undergrad. It’s a little hard to gauge how informative the participants found it, but I thought I’d use this as an excuse to list all the posts I’ve done in the past for people looking into studies/work in research. I hope these help guide you through your decision making.

Feel free to click on the headings- it’ll take you straight to these previous posts of mine.
