Hi, I'm Samah Zarroug and I studied IfLS PhD: Associative learning in Caenorhabditis elegans within Institute for Life Sciences at the University of Southampton.

The outcome of such collaboration will not only lead to advances in science, but will enhance my career choices and boost my confidence, as I will have to face many new challenges due to working across several disciplines

Throughout my undergraduate and postgraduate studies, I developed a strong background in neuropharmacology. During my work as a research technician, I was intrigued by the combination of studying behaviour and pharmacology in animal models of psychiatric illnesses. Therefore I decided to do a PhD that can link both psychology and neuroscience.

As an IfLS PhD student, I am privileged to do a PhD project that bridge between three different departments within the University of Southampton: School of Psychology (Dr Steven Glautier), Centre of Biological Science (Prof Lindy Holden-Dye and Prof Vincent O’Connor) and School of Electronics and Computer Sciences (Prof Hywel Morgan).

The project combines 3 different areas: studying i) classical conditioning and ii) behaviour in Caenorhabditis elegans as well as iii) developing microfluidic device to measure behavioural responses.
