First of all I want to thank the members of Scientopia for inviting me to be part of this guest blogging series. I'm looking forward to dusting off my blogging skills and putting them to use again.
For those of you don't know me. I'm a member of the most of the under-represented groups in science. I'm like a trifecta of biases against me. I'm an older graduate student (started when I was >30yrs old), a woman of color, and a mom of 1.8.
I started blogging when I came back from my first mat leave and in my next post will get into why I started blogging and how my reasons for blogging have evolved. For now, I just wanted to take this opportunity to say hello as I wasn't sure how much time I would have to blog today as I'm at scientific meeting, giving a talk in 1.5 hours, then leaving to see my nephew for his birthday, before heading home to enjoy mothers day with my little monkey - a day in the life of a expecting, scientist-student, mom 🙂
