Hi, welcome to Science on Trial [and Error] - a podcast from a scientist to scientists.
I'm Kasia Kuzmicz-Kowalska and I'm pursuing a PhD in Developmental Biology at IST Austria.
The idea for this podcast was born out of my love for science and curiosity of people's stories. Join me as I chat with researchers from different fields and at different levels of their careers. We will discuss their current work, but also their scientific path. Why have they started to love science? Where are they going next? I will look for some funny stories and for what is cool about science these days. And let’s be honest, it’s not all science and no play - outside-of-work activities and passions are definitely going to be covered.
Allow yourself to be inspired and enjoy the company of my amazing guests.

    Episode 012 - Daisy Shearer

    Episode 012: Daisy Shearer is a British physicist and a PhD candidate in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics at the University of Surrey (UK). Her research project is focused on semiconductor spintronics for quantum technology applications.

    We discuss the high prevalence of mental health issues in the academic community and the need for more equality, diversity and inclusion in science. Daisy shares the perks and drawbacks of working in uncharted scientific territories. She also gives insight into her decision to disclose autism diagnosis on social media and to create ‘Neurodivergent in STEM‘ - project aimed to increasing the visibility of neurodivergent people in STEM fields and build a community to share experiences and advice. We also cover big magnets, lasers and Studio Ghibli soundtracks… Enjoy listening!

    Case Study: Starting a PhD in times of pandemic

    Case Study: Starting a PhD in times of pandemic

    Episode 010: Case Study: Starting a PhD in times of pandemic.
    In this special episode my guests are Christine Fiedler, Ishita Gupta, Rebecca June Morse Mora and Valentin Hübner. They all started their PhD studies at IST Austria in September 2020, but their experiences differ in many ways. We discuss how they dealt with application process, working during lockdowns and having courses online. They acknowledge the challenges and struggles of the last year, but we also recognize achievements and successes. We try to figure out what could be improved for the new students who will start their PhDs this year.
