Can you describe your research?
My research project aims to explore the behavioural and neurochemical mechanisms by which animals establish sexual partner preferences, with emphasis on first sexual experiences, fetishes and female orgasm.
How will this program be of benefit?
I have worked throughout my entire university education to stay connected with society through science outreach. Thus, the program was of particular interest to me as an opportunity to train myself further and improve my skills in media communication and scientific writing.
Also, I firmly believe the program will not only provide the necessary training, but also the networking opportunities to take the next step into a possible career after graduation.
Making good science is as important as how it is communicated. We owe our endeavours to the discovery of new knowledge, and what’s more exciting than sharing one’s findings?
