I am junior group leader on my own Swiss National Science Foundation Ambizione grant. My PhD student and I work on the morphological evolution of turtles, using high resolution 3D data from extant species and fossils. My daily business is research, but I also have supervisory and administrative duties, as well as some teaching.
Was your D.Phil relevant to what you are doing now?
Yes, the PhD set the foundations of my later work by teaching me core methods and concepts, as well as academic writing, problem solving and academic critical thinking.
