I'M ORIGINALLY FROM...
Isle of Wight, England
WHY I APPLIED TO THE SECURITY SCIENCE DTC
I wished to further my professional skills with a PhD in order to pursue a career in research. I wanted a course that would be challenging and rewarding, where I could apply empirical research to real life problems.
Applying physical sciences, predominately inorganic/physical chemistry, to the development of state-of-the-art security technology. The use of evidence in the decision/policy making process.
WHAT I DO WHEN I'M NOT STUDYING
Visiting family and friends, running, tennis, baking, exploring London and museums (I love history).
MY CAREER ASPIRATIONS
Whether in the lab or office, chemistry or policy, I want to work in research. Most importantly, I want my work to contribute to society in some way.
WHAT KIND OF PARTNER ORGANISATION I'D LIKE TO WORK WITH AND WHAT I'D LIKE FROM THEM
I'm looking for anyone who conducts useful research that benefits society using empirical methods to achieve this and where the end-user is considered throughout. Ideally, they would be interested in developing technology for society's benefit.
