How has the scholarship award enabled you to pursue your ambitions? 
This scholarship has given me the financial security to pursue interesting areas of speciallist research. In addition to covering my full tution fees and living expenses, I can attend conferences to experience the most recent scientific developments and network with big names in the field.

Why did you choose to study at Imperial? 
Imperial has a good combination of modern research facilities and opportunities in my field of interest. The research conducted previously in my research group aligned perfectly with my past experiences and I was eager to add to the successes already achieved in the Fuchter group.

What have you been up to on the programme so far? 
The annual Schrödinger lecture has been a highlight for me. In addition to the fascinating talk, it was an excellent opportunity for networking with successful scientists. I'm grateful that this award has provided me with such an enriching opportunity.
