Rajarshi Saha, a PhD student in primatology
Fascinated by primates (thanks to Richard Dawkins & Tetsuro Matsuzawa), I did a transition from molecular biology to the wonderful realm of primate behaviour. After my master thesis in human-primate interaction, I obtained a research assistant position with University of California, Davis, which was probably one of the best thing that could happen to my career.
Now, I am a PhD student at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (Poland) focusing on biological anthropology. I am also one of the biggest Star Wars fans in the galaxy (self-claimed) and a proud Obi-wan-kenobi follower. And I am a golden retriever lover.

Sofia Oliveira, a PhD student in science communication
I have been fascinated by wildlife for as long as I can remember. And when I turned 10, I already knew exactly what I wanted to do as a job. I aspired to be a biologist. Nowadays – 17 years later – I can proudly say that I have fulfilled my childhood dream. I hold a bachelor’s in biology and a master’s in ecology.
For me, nothing else compares to being surrounded by nature and discreetly gaze upon the everyday life of animals. That is my absolute favourite thing to do. The second one is to pass along my passion for wildlife to other people. That is the reason why I started this blog and also why I am currently pursuing a PhD in Science Teaching and Dissemination at the University of Porto (Portugal). Now, concerning the big questions: I am a dog person and I like pineapple on my pizza.
