Tell us about your career journey since you graduated…

I was doing an Industrial PhD and was basically placed in a company to do the research. I became an employee there after finishing my PhD.

Why did you choose to study at Brunel and why would you recommend Brunel to others?

Brunel is one of the very few universities that offer an Industrial PhD. This provides a great opportunity to not only learn how the academic research is done, but also how the industrial research environment is. If you are interested in doing a PhD, I would definitely suggest undertaking an Industrial PhD.

If you could give one piece of advice to new students, what would that be?

During your university years, you will have a lot of free time to investigate what you like and learn the things you would like to do after the graduation. Use this time wisely, invest it in your future, and don't forget to have fun!

Your learning journey is starting now, so never stop studying to be the best that you can be in your career.
