It’s folate to metabolise: thanks and farewell Nafisa Jadavji

At the end of May, we were joined by Nafisa Jadavji (@Nafisa_10). Nafisa is a postdoctoral neuroscience researcher and instructor at Carleton University and the University of Ottawa.

Nafisa shared with us, amongst other things, some of her recent research

… and started an important discussion about burnout in scientists.

Nafisa kindly obliged when we asked her to fill out our exit interview, and her answers are below.

In general terms, how did you find your week as a curator?

It was fun. I used Hootsuite to schedule tweets which helped with the additional workload.

It can be a shock talking to so many. Did you find the sudden rush of interactions (good and bad) daunting?

I liked getting replies to my tweets, it was nice.

What were the highlights? Were there any lowlights?

The highlight were the number of people responding to my tweets. The lowlight was the additional work, but I managed that with Hootsuite.

Is there anything you wanted to get out of / do on the RS account that you didn’t manage to fit in?


Did you have a plan? If so, did you stick to it?

Yes, I generated a list of interesting articles I had read the week before and also a list of research articles I wanted to share.

Do you have any tips or advice for future RS curators?

Use Hootsuite to schedule tweets.

Thanks once again Nafisa from all of us here at RealScientists HQ. If you missed anything from her week, the tweets are all collated at the following link.
