WHY I APPLIED TO THE SECURITY SCIENCE DTC

During my last year of M.Sc I found myself more interested in the antennas world. The SECReT programme provides me the opportunity to do research in this exciting field, while learning in a multidisciplinary environment also bringing academia and industry together.

WHAT I DO WHEN I'M NOT STUDYING

I like reading, watching TV series, going to the cinema and I love travelling and skiing!

MY CAREER ASPIRATIONS

Don't stop learning and also work on innovative security solutions, based on technology and communications.
