Data detectives, self-love, and humility - a research parasite’s perspective

less than 1 minute read


As the 2019 Research Parasite Junior Parasite award recipient, GigaScience asked me to share some thoughts on life as a research parasite - tips and philosophies on doing open and reproducible science as a PhD student. The resulting piece is now published!

I had a lot of fun combining some of the topics I talked about in my “PhD Chat” talk at my lab summit, plus some that I mentioned in my award speech into this commentary.

Check it out, hope you enjoy it!
