Behind the scenes...


Hi! I'm Michael Whaby. I am a postdoctoral researcher studying cancer biology. I created Science Underdog years ago to share some of my experiences and struggles as a student in the sciences. Through stories, I hope to engage readers by providing unique insights into the work life of a student or professional in the sciences. I also share tales of just being a human being.

I hope you enjoy!
