An Introduction – by Kagz Micheni

Introducing yourself to what is undoubtedly a large community can be somewhat unnerving, but I have found that the best way to do it is just dive straight in. My name Is Kagweni Micheni, however due to the fact that it produces a hilarious variety of mispronunciations I am more widely known as Kagz (always with a ā€˜Zā€™, never an ā€˜Sā€™). I am a third yearĀ bio-medicalĀ student about to embark on my final year project/dissertation with the very talented Anne Osterrieder, assisting with her research.Ā  The research will be investigating Ā golgins which are proteins found in theĀ GolgiĀ apparatus. But more on that later, this post is primarily about me (not that Iā€™m big headed or anythingā€¦).

Well I suppose I am your typical 21 year oldĀ bio-medicalĀ student. As clichĆ© as it sounds, I love science. Particularly biology, I only kind of like chemistry. I love the idea that we know so much about how the body works, not just on a ā€œthis is how your digestive system worksā€ level, but we can go deeper, look at the cellular processes, see structures of even the smallest molecules and see how important that molecule is to a whole system. And even better despite all the knowledge we have, there is still more to learn, more to discover and even more secrets to beĀ unraveled.

Other than the science stuff, I am and possibly always will be a sitcom addict. Iā€™m pretty sure I watch more sitcoms than would be deemed healthy. Seriously, name it and I will have seen it. I love documentaries especially if David Attenborough has anything to do with it. I love him. It is a special weird kind of love where Iā€™m not sure if I want to marry him or if I want him to be my grandfather, but I have decided since neither options will ever be available to me, I willĀ endeavorĀ to be as much like him as I can.

Anyway, my weird Oedipus complex aside, over the nextĀ  few months I will be working with Anne and whilst doing so keep you all informed on the research we will be doing. Hopefully I have adequately introduced myself, but if for any reason you would like to delve into the complex personality that is me, feel free to ask any questions.
