Show Notes

Hello everyone!
Welcome back to episode 85.

 My guest today is Nolwandle Khumalo from South Africa. In this episode, we talk about her interests outside of science and how they play a role in her research journey. We talk about the ROOT of her science, and she explains why she initially wanted to be a doctor and shares the influences that later led her to change her mind during her academic journey. Currently,  Nolwandle is a PhD student in environmental science at North West University in South Africa. Her current research focuses on the microbial exchange that occurs during pollination between honey bees and flowering plants such as sunflowers. Listen in as we learn about the significance of this research, the ROOT of her science, and MUCH MORE.
