Hello, my name is Teresa and I am a PhD student in Chemistry at the Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Chemistry.
I have started this blog to tell the story of my weight loss. My weight loss wasn’t only a body transformation, I gained loads of confidence and started believing more in myself and my potential. If I did it, everyone can do it as there is no better feeling of being proud of themselves. Please do check my section about healthy living to know more.
My more recent posts are focused on my research as a chemist and PhD life. With my website, I want to encourage graduate students to discover and unlock their potential as well as exploring all the possible career options after PhD graduation. I also provide examples of people inside and outside academia who made a success out of their PhD.
I have many hobbies and passions. I am Ambassador for the Society of Chemical Industry, I am passionate about Sustainability and Green Chemistry, I am very active in science communication. I am keen on doing sports, I recently ran half marathon and raised money to support the Alzheimer Society. I enjoy knitting as it reminds me my childhood in Southern Italy.
If you want to know more about me and who I am I encourage to read my biography on the Female Scientist association website
