How has the scholarship award enabled you to pursue your ambitions?
The scholarship has helped me with living expenses in the city, allowing me to focus on my research. It has also given me a chance to be a part of a community of researchers in other departments and to attend the annual Schrödinger lectures.

Why did you choose to study at Imperial?
I chose Imperial because my supervisor's research domain aligned well with my interests and I found its doctoral programme to be well structured. Moreover, the College is located in one of the most diverse cities in the world.

What have you been up to on the programme so far?
So far, I have been studying relevant courses, reading background research, and working on developing a non-commutative analogue of the existing Hörmander theory.
