I have always found biology interesting. When I was a kid, I was fascinated by the secret of life that is in every cell of every living beings. So I grew up with the crazy idea that I wanted to be a scientist to discover this beautiful thing that is life!!

Thus in 2006, I came to UK to learn english and to study the science of life.

In June 2010 I graduated from the University of Westminster with an Upper Second Class (Honours) in Biotechnology.

More I progressed with my studies more I become convinced that life sciences have to preserve life. Therefore I become interested in a more translational research.

I was selected for a MSc in Nanotechnology and Regenerative Medicine at University College London in order to expand my knowledge in biomaterials and tissue engineering. I found my postgraduate studies at UCL stimulating and challenging. I have felt extremely attracted to the subject and more determined to develop my research skills and to apply for a PhD position. I have seriously considered various options for my next stage of a PhD, and decided that the White Rose Consortium would be an excellent environment for this, with opportunities to collaborate particularly with university groups within UK, and internationally.

I have gained some practical research experience within my academic studies, and also by working in a busy teaching hospital (Royal Free Hospital, London). Most recently I have performed a 6 month research project at the Restoration of Appearance and Function Trust (RAFT, Mount Vernon Hospital, London) to contribute to my MSc degree. This has been rewarding, partly because I have gained a working knowledge of important laboratory techniques, such as tissue culture and confocal microscopy.
