The importance of communicating research

research news

The world of academia can feel like a somewhat inaccessible one. When you enter as an undergraduate student it can take a while to wrap your head around it all. The world of research is undoubtedly important. Knowledge is fascinating, and changes how we think and act in our world. It’s important to make this knowledge interesting and accessible to all if it’s ever going to make a difference. We’re all aware of clickbait titles and wild articles that don’t… Read moreThe importance of communicating research

#BeBoldForChange – International Women’s Day

#BeBoldForChange - International Women’s Day

“I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.” – Audre Lorde Today we celebrate International Women’s Day.

People are wrong. The theme of this year’s Women’s Day is #BeBoldForChange.  In the current climate, it’s important that we do what… Read more#BeBoldForChange – International Women’s Day

It’s nice to be able to ease into it a little, but by Thursday last week, I’d already had more than one late night in the library. Getting excited and motivated about another semester can be pretty tricky when you’ve just had a luxurious break cuddling up with hot chocolate and mince pies, so I thought I’d… Read moreGetting back into the swing of university

Lazy Saturdays at the Castle Terrace Farmer’s Market

Lazy Saturdays at the Castle Terrace Farmer's Market

One of my favourite places in Edinburgh is the Castle Terrace Farmer’s Market. It’s a really cute little market held every Saturday from 9-2 (if that’s a bit early for you on a Saturday, there’s also a Sunday market in Stockbridge from 10-5). The farmer’s market is great if you’re looking for fresh, local produce and meat, excellent bread and pastries, interesting street food, or just somewhere lively to stroll through on a Saturday. It is a little bit pricier than… Read moreLazy Saturdays at the Castle Terrace Farmer’s Market
