Pregnancy couldn’t stop PhD

20 July 2016

Every day I used to sit at a café at the beautiful UQ St Lucia campus and wait for my husband – a PhD scholar at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB) - to meet me for lunch. And every day I would wonder if I would ever enter the building as a PhD student.

This week, I graduate with a PhD from IMB and ongoing employment there, a 2-year-old son, and proof that dreams really can come true.

IMB PhD graduate Rubbiya Ali looks back on everything she’s achieved at UQ, including mapping microalgae to help produce more efficient biofuels and having a son.
