As part of our 2018 online course "Research Writing in the Sciences" we ran a competition called "Capture Your Research" which challenged participants to share a picture of them doing their research. We received over 50 pictures and INASP staff voted on which was the best. It was a difficult decision, but the winner was Sabita Gurung from Nepal, who sent in this picture of her doing a morphological measurement of a mouse during a rodent survey in 2018.
Sabita wins a £50 Amazon voucher, and will get the opportunity to tell us more about the story behind this picture in a future blog post. Congratulations Sabita!
