Hi I am Magdalena!
I’m a scientist-baker hybrid whose favourite pastimes are listening to “This American Life” while working on a microscope, signing to my hand mixer in high falsetto, and cracking eggs.
I am pursuing a PhD reconstructing past vegetation changes over the last 4000 years in southern Africa… which is completely unrelated to baking. Baking helps me cope with stress related to PhD and research. In contrast to research, baking takes little time to produce amazing results! I have been exploiting this psychological loop to get through my PhD relatively intact and sane.
