Since university I’ve always worked as an Engineer. Before that I did lots of work experience placements and had a few part-time jobs. For work experience I worked at a stock brokers, solicitors, and in a IT firm. As part-time work I’ve worked as a waitress, bar staff, at waitrose and at superdrug.
Yes, before being a researcher in the UK, I worked in Mexico trying to develop technology for the National Institute of Rehabilitation. I worked there for 1.5 years, until I decided to do my PhD in Glasgow.
