Current Employer/Organisation Name
What have you been doing since leaving Exeter, and what are you doing now?
Currently, I am working for a biotech company, called Aldevron, as a biomanufacturing operator aiding in the production of modified plasmid DNA samples for various research organizations.
What did you enjoy most about your programme and what was the biggest highlight?
I greatly enjoyed meeting and discussing with other prospective elites both within and outside of my field of study and have been able to form lasting friendships with many of my colleagues.
What did you enjoy most about studying here?
Scenery and the teaching style by my professors (special attention to Dr. Outram and Dr. Sykes for giving me the knowledge and respect to achieve my degree).
Why did you choose to study at Exeter?
International experience and was introduced to the university at an anthropology conference in the US.
What skills and experiences have been most useful for your career?
(Currently transitioning to a more pathological position so that I may use the skills I obtained during my year at Exeter)
What advice would you give to a current student who wishes to pursue your career?
Volunteer in museums or get as much field experience as possible to put some substance behind your name when you want to truly move into the industry.
What are your plans for the future?
Hopefully to pursue a doctorate in the next few years in epidemiology or global health (unsure of where to necessarily apply as I greatly enjoyed my international experience and may seek to return to the UK to further my education).
