I am getting back into my research after my maternity leave and reminding myself just how much I enjoy what I do. My role as a researcher in environmental health has been incredibly varied and has taken me to some truly awesome places. For example, I’ve sampled particles emitted from Villarrica volcano in Chile, quantified the contaminants in drinking water samples from rural villages in Nicaragua and visited podoconiosis patients on the volcanic plateau of Ethiopia.
This blog will highlight some of my previous research, and keep you up to date with new findings. I also plan to use this space to post any articles or literature I come across.
