Science is commonly known as a rigorous and self-correcting process. But what if we can do better? What if we can make science more accessible, more reproducible, and more trustworthy. Realizing that science is not always quick to self-correct can be a hard lesson for young researchers. You might spend years going down one path only to find it’s a dead end.
In this weeks episode of Boiling Point Anastasia and Tim chat to Dr. Rose O’Dea. Rose has recently graduated with her PhD and is now a post-doc at UNSW.
