Oonagh Bodin - Interview with postdoc Dr Lucy Stewart

Posted by on 12 August 2016

I was lucky enough to meet Lucy in New Zealand earlier this year where we had both been invited to the New Zealand Microbial Ecology Consortium (NZMEC4.0) in Auckland. Lucy introduced herself upon realizing that she had worked in the same laboratory, in Massachusetts, as one of my PhD supervisors (Dr Ashley Franks) during her own PhD. What a small world it is!

So long and thanks for all the Micro!

Posted by on 6 September 2015

Hi everyone!

It's been great fun being your ASM communications ambassador for the last two weeks! I've learned a lot and had a great time talking to some of Australia's ECR and PhD researchers! I hope I've kept you as entertained as our previous ASM Communications ambassadors. I'm really looking forward to seeing what our next ambassadors will do! I can be found on twitter by searching @msmicrobiocode and would welcome any micro (or other) chat with you all!

Warm regards,

Zoe.

Zoe's mini-interviews with eight Australian ECR and PhD researchers!

Posted by on 5 September 2015

Hi everyone!

Coming towards the end of my role as your ASM Communications ambassador for the last two weeks I thought I would like to share some mini-interviews I've been very fortunate to conduct with talented early career and postgraduate researchers located throughout Australia at both regional and metropolitan campuses/institutes. Their projects are fascinating and they're all at different stages in their work in the areas of wastewater microbiology, virology, bioinformatics, environmental microbiology and more!
