      No two days are the same for me! Some days, I’m out in the field, checking how the rivers and lakes are changing over time. Some days, I’m in the lab. We set up controlled experiments to check what happens to hosts when they have parasites at different temperatures. Some days, I’m on the computer, running simulations or statistical analyses to see what our results might mean in the future.
      Most days I don’t discover anything super revolutionary, but I pretty much learn something new every day. 🙂

      Everyday is different! At the moment I am getting ready to start my study so there is a lot of paperwork and meetings to go to! I am also writing a paper! It is always really busy! No, I don’t discover something new every day but I do usually learn something new!
