Academia is all about #rejection ! Resilience is learning to not take the fails personally, to laugh and learn from each experience 😊 I’ve had so many #fails this year, but lucky I’ve got good friends always ready for a coffee, a hug and a chat! #academicfail #girlpower
Sunday night feels
Meet Kirsty K, Lizard Island Station’s treasured research vessel and legend of a boat, about to head off on another adventure to the Turtle Group with me and Dr Hoey! She’s supported so much amazing marine research she’s probably earned her PhD by now (or at least an acknowledgment on your paper). We love you Kirsty K!
New boots! My Christmas shopping trip went a bit awry but I’m so excited for my first pair of @_agaveblue_ boots, thank you so much Zoe!
Under the jetty at @heron_island_research_station is where I’d rather be this Sunday!
Beautiful #FlindersReef is a subtropical paradise just on #Brisbane ’s doorstep. This week I’ve been confined to the office but I’ve been lucky to help analyse some epic #citizenscience data from the #MoretonBay area that suggests Flinders is among the healthiest #coral #reefs in #SEQueensland ! @reefcheckaustralia @queensland
Three years ago today that I was on Heron Island Research Station sciencing with these three! Since this photo in the rinse tank they've been off on adventures chasing aurora borealis in the Arctic circle, protecting whales in the Southern Ocean and doing important science work on corallines in beautiful Scotland. So proud of these strong women divers who take their passion for the marine environment wherever they go! But it's been three years so I think it's definitely time for another bath 😂 @wdhof @paditv #WomeninSTEM
