Research Experience: “I had a fantastic experience studying as a PhD candidate at Brunel University London. During my time at Brunel, I was privileged to learn from, and work with, expert academics from a wide-range of research themes, who guided and encouraged me to produce high-quality research. I was regularly inspired by the work of my peers in the wider PhD student environment, and I was fortunate to collaborate with them in my work. These collaborations have extended to ongoing and lasting friendships. My experiences at Brunel University London provided me with excellent personal and professional development, and the foundation for my continuing scientific career."
