My goal is to become an effective researcher specialising on biodiversity conservation and crop disease management in agriculture. My UK education provides me with research skills in genetic analyses and helps develop my confidence, independence and critical thinking skills. The research group that I am working with provides me with a network of international collaborators. This exposure to different research environments has equipped me to work alongside scientists worldwide to better understand, predict, and control agricultural pest outbreaks and biodiversity issues in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.
Upon the completion of my study, I will maintain strong collaboration with my host institution, the Manchester Metropolitan University and the scientists whom I have worked with not only in research but also in the development of educational practice through the exchange of further faculty and students between the institutions.
