Featured ‘Day in the life of’: Amy, a PhD student investigating the impacts of climate change on food and nutrition, and a yoga teacher on the side.

An Aussie PhD student (yoga teacher on the side) investigating the impacts of climate change on food and nutrition security and non-communicable diseases in Vanuatu currently doing a professional development stint (aka internship) at the World Health Organization in Geneva (it’s a hard life).  Find out more at my blog Pina Colada PhD.  A typical day?  Not really…the joy of having work freedoms and flexibility!
