Abstract

When I first arrived in Belgium to begin my Ph.D. studies, I wasn't sure how I would survive without my friends and family back in northern India. I had chosen to pursue my doctoral studies at Ghent University because of its unique biological engineering program, but I expected that living in a new country would be challenging. I was right. I had a hard time eating the unfamiliar food (on several occasions I didn't eat at all) and often struggled to overcome everyday obstacles, such as navigating public transportation and interacting with salespeople.
