My thoughts and musings
My thoughts and musings
Hi friends, welcome to my weekly newsletter. This is just a space for me to share my favourite things I have encountered this week and updates on my projects. I hope by seeing my progress (and struggles) in “real time” will give you an insight into what I am doing and encourage you in whatever it is you are doing.

My favourite things this week
📚 Book - This week I finished “In Order To Live” by Yeonmi Park in which she describes her life living in North Korea, escape through China and Mongolia, and new life in South Korea. I have read other books on North Korean defectors but as they all defected in the 90s their stories were quite distant. Yeonmi is my age and whilst I was at school struggling with assignments she was in China struggling to survive. It really puts things in perspective
🎙 Podcast - After a bit of a break I returned to the podcast No Dumb Questions by Destin and Matt. I really enjoyed their episode on unwritten rules in society which got me thinking about what unwritten rules I follow… haven’t thought of any yet but will let you know.
🧬 Article - I presented an article on using nanoparticles to deliver shRNA (in the form of a plasmid) to silence an upregulated gene in prostate cancer. Whilst I was sceptical of the results presented I enjoyed the cross over between different scientific disciplines.
Updates on my projects
In addition to my day job as a research scientist I have a number of side projects on the go. After playing around with a few different projects and trying my hand at various things I have settled on three side projects:
  1. E-commerce company
  2. Science communication
  3. Blogging
All of them are in various stages of development and I will update you on their progress each week.
Picture of the week
Finished glazing some of my pots from pottery lessons, can't wait to see what it turns out like
