About me

Fran_2BWI am Franciska de Vries, an early career ecologist and a BBSRC David Phillips Fellow. I am interested in how plants and soil organisms interact, and how incredibly important these interactions are for everything.

This blog is about me, the science I do, the science I find interesting, and the science that I think everyone should know about. It is about being an early career, female academic, and about the joys and struggles that that brings. It is also, a lot, about women in science.

All views expressed in this blog are my own.
