About me!

Hi, I’m Nafisa! A PhD student in Population Health Sciences at Newcastle University.

More so, this is a reminder to myself of the importance of self reflection and improvement. It is a way for me to share what helps me in my journey and hopefully can help some of you who are interested in academia too! So follow me for regular insights into the world of a PhD student!
