Just got home from work to make some sexy nachos for dinner and what do I find, but more research has arrived!!!! Now do I get to enjoy the good doctor with my nachos and a cool drink? No. Why? Because I'm a professional procrastinator who has 2 papers and a final project due in 24 hours. I will be stuffing my face and typing tonight. .

Congrats to #uscviterbi PhD student Andre Kovach who was awarded the MKS Instruments Travel Grant to attend SPIE Photonics West! #phdlife #usc #travel #conference #optics #photonics
It was super sunny in the classroom where I defended my dissertation prospectus today. I think that must have been a stroke of good luck, because it kept me cheery, and I passed! Leveling up to the dissertation phase! Hooray! #gradschoollife #latergram #PhDlife

Aww look at all my happy little PBMCs! With a viability above 90% I gonna assume they're happy.
.
.
This is quite a familiar sight in the cell culture world: Here I have a cell suspension (my PBMCs that I isolated earlier) diluted in 1:1 ratio with trypsan blue in the hemocytometer for manual cell counting.
.
The trypan blue is a blue dye that can selectively stain dead cells, it does this by binding to proteins that are only located on the inside of the cell, so when the cell dies, the membrane lyses and internal proteins are available.
.
Curious to know if others use human PBMCs in their work, and how!

I have SO so many big things happening next year and have taken on a lot of new exciting roles for 2019 and as such, I am now in planning mode for all these things. First thing for me is to work out what my top 5 goals are for next year and work out how I will try to achieve them. What do you want to achieve in 2019??

That feeling when your cells survive a long weekend/snowstorm and you can run your experiments! 💃💃
.
Tomorrow I’ll be running two experiments that look at the metabolism of these cells (mouse ovarian cancer cells) under different conditions. I’ll be using a Seahorse XF Analyzer machine, which, sadly, I don’t think has anything to do with actual seahorses. BUT, this will measure the oxygen consumption rate of my cells to tell me more about how my cells make energy!
.
“Metabolism” can be difficult to talk about, mainly because it’s such a buzzword. Flashy headlines like “rev your metabolism!” Or “why is your metabolism slow?” get people’s attention, but it leads people to think of their metabolism as just a way to burn off calories. Turns out, metabolism is SO much cooler than that! It’s the biochemical processes of all of your body’s cells working together to keep you alive, allow you to hug your loved ones, and allow you to think about your dreams, wants, and needs. It’s the process of turning what you eat into energy to sustain you. Sure, we can think of metabolism as burning calories, but it’s MUCH neater to think of all of your cells working together to create one large process: life! So I’d just like to say THANK YOU to my cells for using the M&Ms I just ate to get me through some data analysis and paper reading. 🙌🙌

The preprint of our new paper is finally online. We just submitted it for peer review at a scientific journal, but at the same time uploaded it to the #biorxiv server so the data is #openaccess and readily available to the community.

In this study we investigated which chemical forces make protein and RNA form liquid droplets, and how the material properties (for example solid vs liquid aka sugar cube vs honey) of these droplets can be tuned by changing the protein/RNA sequence.

These experiments, backed up by some awesome mathematical modelling done by my buddie (as you can see in the video), are showing us novel ways these protein droplets form and how they can be regulated in our cells. 
Additionally, this data is pointing at design principles that may aide the development of novel nanomaterials for gene therapy and drug delivery.

About halfway through my fieldwork I felt like I was losing my mind. In Colombia there is something call envidia...and people start to do black magic on you. While over cups of coffee after interviews the conversations would often turn towards topics of the armed conflict and sorcery I couldn't believe when this happened to me. I felt like I was swallowed up by the jungle. But stricken with guilt at the thought of leaving the field I persisted...sticking it out in far out places down the river and into the rainforest. I found myself literally cast off in the jungle trying to deal with anxiety. Self-care is so important when it comes to our fieldwork. Making space to do things that nourish us and keep us grounded should be made a priority. And sometimes it's okay to leave the field. #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #anxiety #depression #phdepression #graduateschool #phdlife #gradschoolstruggles #fieldwork #phd #highereducation #phdstudentlife #strongertogether #visibilitymatters #depression

College graduation 🎓 headshot taken (years ago) at the holiday break. When you’ve chosen the academic life, it always feels like finals on the days before the holidays. It requires a big push of energy to get it all done. What a blessing to have time off, but I always look serious, pale, and tired this time of year. Is it academia or does everyone feel this way heading into the holidays? Maybe I’m just a summer soul.

IM SO CLOSE TO FINISHING THAT STUPID PAPER, but for real I’m proud of how far I’ve been able to get with this, as well as getting through the semester✅
••
This little quickie was after 30 minutes of cardio and my normal machine rotation so I was a bit tired😅 3x25 twisters, 3x15 sit ups, 3x25 bosu ball kick outs, and 3x10 squats👊👊👊

Perfectionist tend to set standards so high that they’re not even attainable for them or it is nearly impossible to achieve without great difficulty⠀
•⠀
Here’s a tip for combatting It. Try not rehearsing your answer in your head. Ignore that inner voice that keeps saying “Nope. You’re wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong”⠀
•⠀
You’re allowed to make mistakes. You’re allowed to not know everything. You’re allowed to be patient and realistic with yourself.⠀
•⠀
And you’ll be surprised at how many times… you’re actually right. Speak up!⠀

*NEW POST* Both halves of Rachel’s STEM #gradschoolapplications guide up on the blog! It’s wild to look back to when Rachel and I graduated from undergrad and think about how much we’ve done since. I know at that point I was planning on taking a school year off because I didn’t really have a plan for what came next. Applying for masters and PhD programs was so intimidating and I didn’t really know what to expect or what was expected of me in that process. I’m grateful to have made it to a point where we can help others figure out some of this #hiddencurriculum.  What is your advice for people in the midst of applying to grad school? We’d love to keep these posts updated with great advice and assemble more links to resources. .

Look at this beautiful gift I received! #family #OU #PhDLife
I made this a year or two ago because I thought it was hilarious to say that people who graduated were "in a better place." I hung it at my bench to remind myself that one day I wouldn't be here anymore, I'd be in a better place too. Well, I'm writing my dissertation now, and haven't been at my bench in weeks, until today when I took a break to clean. Seeing this, I realized that I'm still here. I haven't graduated yet. But mentally, I'm in a much better place than I was when I hung this up. It's not over yet, but the hard road has been worth it. #thisiswhatascientistlookslike #womeninstem #mentalhealth #positivelyreframed #inabetterplace #gradschool #science #phdlife

Experiment n 2 of the field season! Studying the scavenging role of #turtles. Turtles eat carrion in the water hence keeping it clean and preventing eutrophication.  I am quantifying this role by observing changes in water quality in mesocosms. For now, this short necked turtle (E. macquarii) seems to enjoy the sunshine just as much as me!

For now, this short necked turtle (E. macquarii) seems to enjoy the sunshine just as much as me! . . #🐢 #turtle  #fieldwork  #phd  #phdlife  #phdstudent  #wildlife  #wildliferesearch  #research  #science  #australia  #data  #animals  #reptiles  #reptilesofinstagram  #turtlesofinstagram  #lovemyjob  #sciencegirl  #scicomm  #stemgirls  #stem  #womeninscience  #adventure  #ecology  #italianinaustralia 
Important repost from @mamigoestoschool!

If you’re applying to grad school, or preparing to apply to grad school, I have TWO scholarships for two mamis 😊 if you applied this semester/quarter to start school in 2019, you also qualify! The $500 scholarships will help cover application fees, exam fees, exam prep, and other related costs such as child care. Check out the link in our (@mamigoestoschool) bio for more info! 👩🏻‍🎓👩🏽‍🎓👩🏿‍🎓👩🏼‍🎓👩🏾‍🎓

Just some cat tax.

We both needed to have a relaxing evening... #phdlife #phd #phdcat #phdgrind #catsofinstagram

We all have good and bad days. But I’m trying to keep smiling. To avoid to be in a gloomy mood.

Hi,
Andreas (@icyscience ) here again for this weeks #iglotakeover for #portaleniglo. Earlier we talked about glaciers flowing due to their own weight. Of course it’s not the only reason why glaciers flow. There is always more to it. Take a look at this picture from South Georgia, a small subantarctic island. You can see a highly crevassed glacier flowing over a mountain slope. Snow is still covering many of the crevasses as the picture is taken in the southern spring and makes them invisible from the surface (one of the reasons why glacier travel can be dangerous). But take a closer look to the area where the glacier moves over the rocks. The rocks are wet, as water is coming out from below the ice. What do you do when the bicycle chain is rusty and hardly moves? You take some oil and fix the problem. Water can do similar miracles to glaciers. A glacier like the one on the picture can slide on a thin film of water, which lubricates it and allows it to flow faster then it would alone through its’ gravity. So if we want to understand why some glaciers flow faster than others we need to learn more about the flow of water through and under glaciers. Something I work with and will tell you more about tomorrow @icyscience.

... it’s an optical illusion. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Whether you’re a first year teacher, grad student, parent, entrepreneur, or anything else - this is your reminder that Instagram is often a highlight reel. What you never see are the low points, the challenges, the tears, the frustrations, the hard work. Everyone struggles from time to time and it’s ok to not have it together. Life can be a mess which can also be a beautiful thing. If you’re having a rough day/month/year, choose gratitude instead of comparison. 💛

Sometimes all we need is a sticker to make a bad day seem less 💩 
Last year around this time... @dinjavanderhoorn let’s bring stickers back - I feel like we all deserve them!! 🧠🔬🎄🥂 #bestlabmates

In today’s #phdprocrastination lesson: #upcycling all the liquor bottles you’ve collected from the many nights of tears and “cheers” over this soul sucking #phdjourney. #diyhomedecor #blackphds #phdlife
2 pictures taken today at a few hours of interval 
From #conference by day to #yogini by night... 2 side of the same coin, the researcher & the yogi, from the desk to the mat, from books to instinct, from teaching to meditating... the Yin & the Yang

What I love with yoga is that it teach me how to manage my stress from my PhD. And my PhD teach me to go deeper, to looks pass the obvious & to persevere which Are skills that I am using with my yoga practice... somehow those 2 different things complete each other 👩🏻‍🏫🧘🏻‍♀️
I am all of that & even more, I am all & nothing, I am complex & I am embracing that 🙏🧡🧘🏻‍♀️👩🏻‍🏫

Changing Tide mugs. Life right now is pretty hectic but these mugs are so calming to look at and lovely to drink from. I've kept one for myself, perfect for lots of tea to get me through these last few months of PhD thesis writing.
