School of Life Sciences University of Dundee What skill have you learned in your studies that you find useful in other aspects of your life? During my PhD studies, I’ve significantly improved my ability to multitask and to manage several projects simulta- neously. This has greatly helped me as a biophysicist to be able to productively handle the multi-faceted nature of interdisciplinary research, as well as allowing me to schedule time to enjoy hobbies and to socialize alongside my studies.
