Welcome to theScienceGrad!
Hi! My name is Natasha, I’m the founder of theScienceGrad.
About myself – I have a degree in Biological Sciences, specialising in Infection and Disease. Currently I work as a Regulatory Affairs Officer in medicine, medical devices, food supplements and cosmetics.
About theScienceGrad – I found throughout the pandemic there was widespread distribution of information that wasn’t correct (i.e. “misinformation” or miscommunication”) via social media. I wanted to create a space where science was explained simply and clearly, for anyone regardless of scientific background or education. Then, I started writing…and I really enjoyed it. It was a brilliant creative outlet, researching COVID helped me to mediate my own fears. Being able to respond to questions from families and friends with true, accurate information, made me feel calmer about the whole pandemic situation. Communicating with people via social media, and the internet, made me feel less isolated.
Now, I want to expand my content to speak about other topics that interested me in Science, Health, Medicine & Disease. I also want to create a space on theScienceGrad for Careers. I know during the pandemic many internships and graduate schemes have been cancelled, and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to get work experience. Therefore, I want a space on theScienceGrad to speak to people who have graduated with degrees in science or are working in the science sector. Including people who have used their science degree as a platform to access careers outside of science! Hopefully in doing this, we can help guide and give examples of the jobs and industries available to Science Graduates.
