I studied Chemistry with Year in Industry at the University of Leeds, graduating with an MChem honours degree. Having thoroughly enjoyed studying at the University of Leeds, I wished to continue my studies here and undertake a research degree. I decided to change my field of study as I wanted to make more of an impact on society, and I feel that a research degree in engineering can help me to do this.
I chose to join the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Integrated Tribology because there is a large emphasis on preparing students to work in industry after completion of the PhD. Unlike other PhD’s the CDT allows students to undertake a project based on personal interests within the field of tribology, with a choice on whether or not you would like an industrial sponsor.
I feel that the CDT is definitely the right choice for me.
