Early Stage Researcher
Teagasc. Agriculture and Food Development Authority
I am part of Marie Curie INSPIRATION ITN project (European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme).
Favourite thing to do in science: Explore nature while doing field work and collecting samples, and seeing the world as part of a research degree , to develop my understanding of all kinds of science from apllied to social to geographical to economics...
About Me: Researcher, traveller, optimist in a realistic way with an active inner child
I find self fulfillment in learning and studying and seeing the world and meeting new people and learning new languages and drinking coffee with crepes and chocolate and french fries! 🙂 🙂 🙂
My Work: Researcher and a PhD student in cleaning soil and water from (agricultural) wastes
I try to find the source of pollution in water drains in a dairy farm. Then I will try to find a sustainable and inexpensive way to clean the polluted water and prevent from more pollution of soil.
My Typical Day: From a nice big breakfast to nice busy working day to nice movie or book to nice dinner
Waking up early, a very good breakfast, taking the bus, going to work, checking my email, going to field to monitor water discharges or collect samples from water and soil, going to laboratory to test the samples, back behind the laptop to do loads of writings, taking the bus, going home, cooking dinner, chatting with family/friends, watching a movie preferably an animation, a bit of needlepoint, reading a book, drinking coffee, going to bed.
Oh, I do some walking/jogging during the day too!
Back in my home country, I went mountain climbing. 🙂
What I'd do with the money: Providing students with better educational equipments
I would like to donate the prize to an organization which provides educational equipment and learning tools to students in less-wealthy countries around the world.
Helping to promote the education worldwide is the main responsibility of a real scientist!
