Me and my work
Currently researching for a PhD in Biomedical Engineering, which looks at anything which relates engineering to the human body. I’m concentrating on knee replacements though!
My Typical Day
After heading to campus, I spend the day doing a variety of work involving designing and using test rigs in the lab, reading research papers to catch up on what other scientists are doing, and meetings to discuss what ive been doing!
What I'd do with the money
Use it to fund scientists like me to be able to go into schools and run fun and hands-on science workshops so that pupils can get an idea of what its like to do science and engineering in their future careers.
How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
Enthusiastic, fun and generous!
Would you rather be a scientist or an athlete? And why?
A scientist! That way you get to do lots of ground-breaking research to help other people and you can still keep fit in your spare time… that and I like chocolate too much!
