Beth Webb, PhD
Hi I’m Beth, I’m an early career researcher at the University of Leeds focussing on platelet inhibitory signalling pathways in the context of cardiovascular disease. I’ve always been passionate about science communication but it wasn’t until 2020 when the pandemic hit that I decided to pursue science communication online starting with a blog, which then lead me to Instagram and Youtube. I share my journey as a first-generation PhD student, give tips and advice for pursuing a PhD, as well as share educational content that I’m passionate about. I’m a keen advocate for work-life balance and the importance of looking after your mental well-being. I take pride in being transparent online to show the real journey of pursuing a PhD here in the UK. Since sharing my journey online, I've had the opportunity to write guest blog posts, work with brands and meet like-minded people.
