Mihaela GB  Founder Research Retold I communicate research Maker, runner, postcard sender 📍Bucharest native living in Leeds I was on the radio last month 🔽

I just met the Head of Research from @leedsbeckett and she used the words ‘enthused’, ‘impressed’, ‘amazing’ to describe meeting me and our work. Happy can’t even begin to describe it.

I have waited 3 months to meet this wonderful woman and I am so glad today it finally happened!

I asked her what the most exciting part of the job is and she said: ‘Meeting new researchers and seeing the amazing work they do to make a positive change’. It’s similar to why I set up @researchretold. I also love meeting people like her who love what they do.
It’s a circle of love.
Do you love what you do?

What an experience!!! I was on the radio today on the Business Live show of @sheffieldlive interviewed by the lovely Jamie Veitch about my business journey, as well as challenges, tips and opportunities related to research communication.

Here’s me holding my guide like a proud mamma.
I shared lots of useful, practical tips for communicating complex information in accessible ways.

I loved it. It was so so so great. Especially so because it was a conversation, rather than an interview.
Thanks to those who tuned in and sent me messages of support this morning, it’s one of the best aspects about social media to be able to have an online space to connect and share good energy.

If you want to have a listen, why not click on the link in my bio? Here it is, from Jamie’s website: https://www.jamieveitch.co.uk/2019/02/how-to-communicate-your-research-more-effectively-with-mihaela-gruia/

Sadly it doesn’t have the song I chose from @deadslowhoot “Everything will be OK” but you can search for that on the webs and have a listen.

Throwback to this time last week when I met the wonderful Dr Emily Smith Wooley from @ucl at @ioelondon. We brainstormed ideas about @researchretold and my guide to communicating research beyond academia.
We agreed to co-design an impact report to look at how effective our visual summaries are in sharing research findings... watch this space for spring 🌸

I love meeting people who are excited about what we do!! If you want to know more about the guide, I put a link in the bio 🤩

Ready, steady, go!
On my way to London with @shawtygetlo for the @nef_in_action Demo Day to set up our @researchretold stand, pitch and meet new people.
I don’t usually drink coffee but today I needed an extra boost. Worked like magic ✨

I’ll be the first of 17 pitches. 4 minutes. At 6:55pm. I cannot wait!

We’ll livetweet with #NEFlive2019 on @twitter and share some more pics later... wish us luck!

Today I spoke about my work - how to communicate research beyond academia - to a room full of inspiring women in research.
I showed 3 visual summaries we did with @universityofleeds @dfid_uk & @officialqmul and shared practical tips they can implement straight away.
The energy in the room was amazing and I left feeling energised and lucky to be working in the research space.

I put the link in the bio if you want to know more about the guide I recently wrote and what we do.
If you know anyone who’d benefit from a chat with us, let me know! 🧡

Trying out a vanilla old fashioned in a quaint English village on a Thursday eve. You could say I’m living the life, folks, you could say that.

Can’t wait to get into my pyjamas.

Skyline of SF from the island of Alameda. Taken during our celebratory run for my 27th.
I imagine running 10k in the dark may not be everyone’s idea of a fun birthday activity. I was that person a year ago.
But 2 years later and after tracking my progress consistently, I am happy that I’ve reached a place where I love running for how it makes me feel and that it’s become a positive workout experience.

I love ‘collecting’ runs in different cities where we travel... anyone else? 🙋‍♀️

Today joy looked like washing shells and rocks with a toothbrush. The emerald green Pacific waves left these jewels on the sand. I love the bits of abalone... (not alabaster). I’m thinking of making some jewellery pieces or luck charms. What do you think? 🦀
