Hi! I am Umas. I'm in my final stage of PhD research on Virginia Woolf and neuropsychology in the twentieth century. Prior to doing a PhD here in Exeter, I did my BA degree in National University of Kaohsiung, Taiwan and a master's in English Literary Studies in Lancaster University. During the year in Lancaster, I developed a great interest in Woolf and neuroscience. It is fascinating to see how literature and neuroscience both are, fundamentally, seeking to understand the meaning of life and being human. I am currently writing up the thesis. Hoping to explore more about Woolf and neuropsychology. 

Apart from doing a PhD, I am interested in bodybuilding, fitness, reading, writing poems or novels, baking, music, films and making friends :)
