Show Notes

Hello everyone!

Welcome to episode 95. 

Remous Ocloo, originally from Ghana but now located in South Africa, is my guest today.
His father and sibling encouraged him to pursue a career in science. He actually wanted to be a doctor, but it didn't work out. He takes us on a journey through his academic career, describing some of the highs and lows along the way. He talks about how a setback helped him qualify for a prestigious scholarship that allowed him to study for his master's degree and now his PhD in South Africa. Remous is currently a PhD student in medical microbiology, and his research focuses on understanding how antimicrobial resistance develops and disseminates within and between humans and animals through the food chain, as well as how this can lead to new antimicrobial resistance policies. He explains the significance of this research in great detail. Finally, we talked about how he manages his work-life balance so that he may perform at his best as a scientist. Tune in for this and more!
