Dowine de Bruijn, PhD student in the Roelfes group (RUG), has initiated her adventure in Faces of Science. Dowine was selected to be part of Faces of Science last January and last Monday she was officially introduced on the Faces of Science website. From now on she will be blogging about her research and experiences inside and outside the lab. Read her first blog about chemistry and what bacteria can do for us here (in Dutch).
Faces of Science is a project of the KNAW, De Jonge Akademie and Kennislink in collaboration with Fastfacts. The project is funded by the Lira Auteursfonds Reprorecht. The goal of this project is to put young scientists working in different disciplines on the spotlight, and show how is their life as researchers. This is done online with the help of movies, blogs and other information about their research. These experiences are meant to inspire and guide students that are in the process of choosing their future studies.
