”We have a great international PhD student community that supports each other!”

"I´m researching the consumer perspective on new food resources and people’s ideas and notions about algae and seaweed."

“Being a PhD student can be quite a challenge sometimes, but at ISM we have a great international PhD student community that supports each other! I really like to exchange with my peers from the department. Many senior colleagues are also really open for exchange and advice on various topics. Since we are an interdisciplinary department one can find researchers from a variety of backgrounds, expertise, and research topics. I´m part of the research project “Marine food resources for new markets” that spans across two faculties and three departments at Lund University. Within the project and also in my thesis I´m researching the consumer perspective on new food resources and people’s ideas and notions about algae and seaweed.


A week as a PhD student can look very different, depending on your to-do list. Sometimes you take a course yourself as a student and are busy with writing an assignment, other times one can have a lot of meetings with colleagues to plan upcoming teaching activities. My favorite is having time for research and when I can spend hours reading, thinking, analyzing my data, and writing. I´m also engaged in The Social Science Doctoral Student Council and spend time working with different councils and boards of the University to represent the PhD students.
