The stories and accolades of a Conservation Biologist that isn’t quite a Conservation Biologist yet.


My name is Carla Archibald and some people think I have too much energy and take too long to learn things. I am a PhD student at the University of Queensland and this is the story of the highs and lows of my experiences during PhDhood.

      1. No problem Carla! I’d like to know what you do, what do you study/what have you studied and why do you want to become a biologist? Maybe we compare ideas and learn new things 😌


  1. Hey Tolga, I am currently a PhD student in conservation science and my background is in avian ecology and conservation research. I am interested in complex conservation problems that span ecological and social landscapes. Conservation science and biology is a broad field which draws on many types of sciences and humanities to solve problems, so my advice would be to study what you are interested in and then adapt your knowledge to problems you are working on.

    In my experience within the industry companies/universities/NGO’s love to hire people that have skills other than just biology e.g. sociology, maths, statistics, political science etc.

    Hope that helps!

    – Carla
