Dunedin is by far one of the greatest places I have ever lived ...

Rosalind Cook
Assistant Research Fellow

When I moved around the world to New Zealand in 2012 to start my PhD I was really excited to begin a new adventure in such a beautiful place. I have always enjoyed a challenge and moving to a new country and starting a PhD didn’t disappoint. The vibrant city and close-knit community made for an easy transition. Dunedin is by far one of the greatest places I have ever lived. While I am kept busy in the lab during the week pushing the forefront of physiology, the peaceful beaches of the world famous Otago peninsula and rainforested slopes of fiordland are a welcome break at the weekends. It’s amazing to feel like a local during the week and like a tourist immersed in an exciting new adventure in my free time.
