Q & A
Why did you decide to do a PhD?
Big question...I will come back to this.
What do you enjoy reading?
I am currently midway through two books - Geoffrey West's 'Scale: The Universal Laws of Life and Death in Organisms, Cities and Companies' and 'The Uncommon Knowledge of Elinor Ostrom' by Erik Nordman - that I intersperse with a fat stack of papers (that I promised my supervisors I'd stop reading 👀)
What do you enjoy doing when you're not working on your PhD?
So much of my time is spent in front of a computer but I love being outside. I like watching things - birds, birds underwater (have you ever seen a cormorant swim?), and fish are my favourites, but I'll watch anything really. I got really into composting during Melbourne's series of lockdowns and spend quite a bit of time tending to (okay, taming) our little gardenr
Name one fun fact about you.
I am a dreamer. Shout out to all the dreamers!
