      I was aiming to work in automotive or aerospace industry but came across prosthetics and decided to give it a go.
      I don’t regret it 🙂

      Hi 21 questions,

      I was really inspired by a lecturer I had at university. To being I just started a short research project in the area of biomedical engineering, which then spiralled to a PhD and now here I am!

      I’ve always wanted to do something that helps people so I think what I do is a good fit for me 🙂

      I chose my area because I’ve always been hooked with robots and the human body, so this has been the perfect marriage between those two worlds!

      I am a microbiologist by background and thats why I’m in my primary field..but I fell into engineering as I use 3D models of tissue to infect with my bacteria..

      I then decided that because they are so expensive to use (£600 every time I do an experiment!!), I wanted to make my own…and thats where the tissue engineering comes into it. I then spent time in Sheffield with another collaborator learning a different tissue engineering method, and I’ve been doing this for about 2 years now 🙂
