First hike in NZ was a success! Today I climbed Mount Karioi, an extinct volcano 🌋 that was last active in the Pliocene (~2.5 million years ago). Complete with neat geology and beautiful views of the Tasman Sea 🌊

I'm feeling lucky and inspired to do my PhD in such a geologically impressive place ⚒️📖 #karioi #nz #geologyrocks #geology #gradlife #phdlife #raglan #nzhiking #iclimbedavolcano

Adorable little plant 🌱😍.
.
This tiny little creature is just so cute. It's not reproducible so not of interest for my experiments, but still, so cute 😄😻!
.
I check on my plants a few times a week. Just to see what's up and if they need some love 👩‍🌾. Or if they're ready for my experiment.
.
Working with plants means that you can predict what needs to be done when but you need to be flexible 🤸‍♀️. Sometimes you need to wait another week and sometimes suddenly all your plants synchronise 🌱🌱😐.
.
These weeks I'm spending a lot of time between our plant growth room and the microscope, hopefully getting some exciting results 🔬🤞.

18th October. Wake.

Seen before dawn. 
Waking at 6.00 with a whole new way of conceptualising your findings swimming around your brain ... there is no other choice but to get up and write that stuff down before it swims itself away! This is what research looks like.

Esa eterna pregunta que ha despertado tanta polémica filosófica...¿qué fue antes, el huevo o la gallina?
Pues bien, desde mi punto de vista fue EL HUEVO! Y ¿por qué? Pues porque el huevo ya era huevo milenios antes de que llegara la gallina. Me explico. Desde un punto de vista evolutivo, remontándonos al origen de la vida, empezaron los organismos unicelulares (reproducción asexual por bipartición) que en un momento dado dieron lugar a organismos pluricelulares con reproducción sexual. Los primeros fueron plantitas y gusanetes marinos, siendo los primeros animales vertebrados fueron los peces, y ¿cómo se reproducen?, ¡pues con huevos! De los peces surgieron los anfibios y de estos los reptiles (y con ellos los primeros huevos con cáscara) y de los reptiles, las aves. Y millones y millones de años después del primer ave y tras millones y millones de pequeñas mutaciones que la selección natural (y también la artificial, pues el hombre cría aves para su alimentación) llegó un día que de un huevo nació una gallina! Ahora bien, en qué momento lo que sale de ese huevo es una gallina y no su antecesor evolutivo ya es más complicado. Esos márgenes están muy difusos, ¡nosotros mismos seguimos buscando nuestro eslabón perdido!
.
¡Eso ha sido todo! Y vosotros, creéis que fue antes la gallina? Por qué? .

Kings Canyon was definitely a highlight of the PhD field trip!! The sheer cliffs are part of the aeolian + lacustrine Mereenie sandstone, which overlies the shallow marine Carmichael Fm. We did the rim walk, where we found unusual dome formations, it felt like you were walking through a lost ancient city!

Pwatunavanua, literally translates to ‘head house’ in the local language Tso, is the name of Elia’s Community Conservation Area which was community-approved today! A big win for the community and future tourists.
.
The area is to be the ‘hed haos blong evri ekosistem we i stap insaed/ main home of all the ecosystems inside the CCA’
.
I was lucky enough to get a guided tour yesterday through part of the 5,000ha CCA exploding beautiful cloud forests and Jurassic Park-esque rainforests feasting on jackfruit, fresh coconut and grapefruit hearing kastom stories and learning about all kinds of local knowledge.
.
. It felt surreal to undertake this adventure knowing that I’m the only ‘whitefala’ to have done this hike and one of very few (could count on one hand) to have visited the CCA.  I’m very grateful to this community for all the amazing experiences.

A rather elaborately-dressed hunter and his doggo returning home from the hunt and proudly carrying a feast of fox and hare appear on the tondo of this Attic black-figure plate by the Tleson Painter, c. 550-540BC, British Museum @britishmuseum 
The return from the hunt was a regular motif on Attic vases and were often seen in sympotic or banquet contexts alongside banqueters, Dionysos, satyrs, and maenads. Interestingly, they also feature in both heterosexual and homoerotic vase contexts, as the hunt also symbolised a successful courtship.

Today is my fifth wedding anniversary. As I'll be presenting at (and working on) a conference all day, I won't really see @monicalynskey - bah!

Basic knowledge is a must!
Pertama kali sampe ke lab, maka mahasiswa baru akan ditugaskan untuk membaca buku-buku tebal tentang neuroscience. Setelah itu disusul dengan membaca buku bertemakan signal processing pada biomedical devices. Namun sebagai manusia biasa, tentu ga semua buku bisa dibaca oleh para mahasiswa baru. Di situlah peran senpai (senior)  lab itu penting.  Namun naasnya sebagai mahasiswa international,  kendala bahasa menjadi dinding pembatas hubungan antara Senpai dan Kouhai. Di sinilah peran senpai "asing" a.k.a mahasiswa international di lab untuk membantu mahasiswa baru paham akan tema penelitian lab.

Incredible talk by the well renowned researcher Jacques Miller. In a literal shack and converted hours stable he discovered that the Thymus wasn’t as unimportant as previously thought and was actually the home to T cells...which is one of the main focuses of my PhD! #medicalresearch #cancerresearch #science #phdstudent #phd #research #researcher #immunology #scientist #phdlife

Munro Cullum and Laura Lacrtiz spoke on the past-president panel. And last but not least, Dr. Heidi Rossetti hosted as the WIL Chair and had the whole room laughing for two hours 😂 The night ended with a fundraising raffle of books, gift cards, and well-coveted “neuro” jewelry 🧠🧠 #ANSTagram #ANST #UTSouthwesternANST #neuropsychology #neuropsychologist #neuroscience #neuroimaging #utsw #utswlife #utswstudents #brains #neuro #psychology #clinicalpsychology #gradstudent #phd #phdlife #NANinNOLA #NANconference

We've been friends since high school. Maybe a little on the competitive side; science, music, sports. Maybe she doesn't know it, but she drives me to be a better scientist, feminist, and version of myself. We've got each other's backs and support each other in this whole PhD thing. She's a badass biochemist and a killer enologist. But she's also an incredible friend! Thanks for helping me continue to straighten my crown without telling the world it's crooked (I totally stole that cliché ...and I don't really care!) and for letting me run away to Santa Cruz when I need some girltime and ocean. 💛💛💛 #owenbug #owendog #shhhdonttellremi #sisterhood #phdepression #phdlife #hikemoreworryless #runmoreworryless #trailrunningentomologist #bekindalways #knowyourfriends #feminist

Been beyond stressed lately- so I finally made time for me today- didn’t get as much work done as I should have, but did the bare minimum for the day, finished not a spectacular, but sweaty workout (phone call with @swanderer927 included!), had dinner with my girl @ai_livinwild, and finally am ending the night studying at Starbucks with @katerinaalk! .

BCA analysis today 💜💜💜 #bcaanalysis
Check out the colour change to purple 💜 for my BCA analysis after leaving my plate in the oven at 60 deg for 1 hour. This is used to quantify my protein concentrations for western blotting. It’s such a cool reaction involving copper ions! #bcaanalysis

Soulara’s indian twist- alloo gobhi with chickpeas, brown rice and peas. . . .

PhD life led me in binge eating and no control over portion size. I tried many food delivery options from restaurants but nutrition almost zero. And other food delivery options were frozen and not vegetarian friendly. Result? I got high cholesterol and stressful lifestyle. My mom was stressed back home. She did some google search and found @livesoulara . I was so reluctant to order. Then my closest friend forced me to order one time and try. I can proudly say that @livesoulara is one of the best thing happened to me in PhD time. • huge variety for vegan/vegetarian
• nutrition on point. All ingredients are fresh! • portion control for people seeking weight loss. • i used to complain for small size of meals but that was a plus point! I started including snacks in between meals. Almonds, walnuts, fruits- things i ignored when my stomach was full due to overeating.
• not sleepy due to small meals and energetic as i save cooking time- this means i can focus on writing my thesis! . . .

Thanks @apoorva2112 @mamta.sharma.35728 And @livesoulara  for easing  my life a little. . . .

Done, and submitted the full paper and ppt slides for the upcoming conference. Even though I won’t be going to the conference next month, I’m still super glad that James is willing to present it on our behalf. It’s our joint paper anyway. Is it just me or I have the most amazing supervisor ever? Thank you James! Pray the best for us! ELAL, FASS, UBD and Brunei represent! Hoping to get this paper published soon — I already got some people asking to read it! Thank you!

Great first day at the World Stroke Congress.
Listened to experts from across the globe including Australia, Brazil, India, Chile, France, the U.K., Nigeria, Germany, the US, and of course Canada. Topics included prehospital stroke care, acute management and best practices for therapeutics, prevention, driving change at the policy level, stroke in low and middle income countries, as well as announcements on the results from the largest global trials in stroke worldwide.

Starting off the world conference of family doctors with a bang #wonca2018 #korea #phdlife #seoul
Almost tempted to bring my laptop and do my data analysis here so I can breathe in some of that lab air. 😂

I never thought I would miss the smell of ethanol and bleach so much. Someone give me some hands on work to do!

Today the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (Harry and Meghan) visit Melbourne.
In 1867 Prince Alfred, the Duke of Edinburgh, and Queen Victoria’s second son visited Melbourne as part of the first global royal tour, a round the world voyage on the specially commissioned ship the Galetea. 
Melbourne pulled out all the stops to welcome the young “Sailor-Prince”. Pictured is Prince’s Bridge (named for his older brother) decorated as it appeared in November 1867. This is the first stone iteration of Prince’s Bridge before it was enlarged and transformed in 1888 in to the bridge that stands today.
Prince Alfred’s visit to Australia was marred when he was shot by the Irish rebel Henry James O'Farrell in an assassination attempt while picnicking on the beach in the Sydney suburb of Clontarf, on 12 March 1868. The Duke recovered fully and continued on to New Zealand seven months later, returning once again to Melbourne in 1869.

The mountains are special but so is the ocean! Especially when it’s just as cloudy and you’re sending down probes to find out more. #science #phdlife #oceanography #rvinvestigator #oceanscience #southernocean

This puppy was in rare form today helping me answer emails...#puppyproblems #bradypup4tw #phdlife
I made a contemplating about life milkshake. So join me as I contemplate.

A student emailed me the other day to tell me that they admire me and that they're thankful for my thoughtfulness and patience and kindness in the classroom. It got me thinking of all the decisions--and especially the mistakes--I've made along the way. How if I had chosen to go to NYU instead of CMU I'd probably in the pit orchestra of some Broadway show right now (if I wasn't in a Philharmonic instead). Or how if I didn't just send that MA application in, I might have never gone to grad school. To say nothing about the seemingly infinite number of mistakes I made in grad school. Or the seemingly insurmountable mistakes I made as a TA, as I'm sure some of my former students will take to the comments section of this post to remind me of 😊

But you know what, an email like that makes everything worth it. All the mistakes. And yes, I know I'm privileged to have gotten where I am. And I have an amazing group of people in my corner. Like my advisors. They're not just the best advisors you could ask for but the best people you could want in your life. I love them to death and I always will.

And I also know that what that student sees every class is the end result of all those decisions and all those mistakes and all those influences on me. The seemingly infinite patience? It's because it's my turn to repay the infinite patience my advisors gave me, and it's something you never fully repay so you have to keep doing it. The thoughtfulness? Because I've gotten it wrong so many times. The kindness? Because I've been in those shoes and much worse.

Through all those decisions and mistakes, I'm right where I want to be.

And students--don't forget to thank your professors from time to time. We appreciate it!

I haven’t posted anything in a while, but that’s because all I do is drink coffee, work, and write papers for class. #phdlife

What to do if you don’t have Hermione’s time turner, but have a stack of qPCR and immunohistochemistry experiments to finish? 
You turn on PhD God mode / aka science Super Saiyan and do them all at the same time.
(Honours) kids, don’t try this at home.

Preparing to lead class discussion on big data & social science - with the help of a chai tea and a brownie at one of my fave work spots yesterday ✍🏼 That class went well this afternoon, but my morning was particularly stressful (included some tears) due to a meeting and a morning class that I didn’t feel prepared for. It all turned out ok in the end (just need to catch up on one reading), and I’m very glad to be home and getting ready for bed 😴 I hope your day has gone well - feel free to let me know in comments or DM if you want to share/vent x

Portrait of a #gradstudent whose deadline is tomorrow. This grad student is also out of town for work, so is writing in the Inn. It smells REALLY nice in here.
