Senior lecturer in microbiology, University of Limerick
I am a Senior Lecturer at the University of Limerick. I moved with my family to Ireland 10 years ago. Before then we were living in the UK.
My Typical Day
My typical day consists of teaching classes of students about different aspects of microbiology. I spend some time in the laboratory doing research with my postgraduate students. Furthermore, I am spending a lot of time at the computer, developing teaching materials, write texts about our research or look through other scientist's research.
