      Hi Caden,

      So I first started in Biology so I got a Biology undergraduate degree. Then I did a Master’s in Biology/Psychology (behavioural endocrinology) – it works a little bit differently in Canada.

      Then I went to the University of Stirling to do a PhD (Doctorate of Philosophy), which is a 4 year degree and basically gives me the ‘doctor’ status (still considered a student). Then I did a post-doctorate job (first actual employment), where I did research for 5 years, and then I became a lecturer! It was a long and windy process, but it was fun and I loved lots of aspects of each of my degrees/jobs! 🙂

      If you have any more specific questions about parts of what I said, or if anything doesn’t make sense, just let me know. 🙂
