Why I chose to study Forensics at Cranfield

I can often be found binge watching the latest true crime documentary on Netflix, so entering a career in this field seemed like a really logical next step.

Whether you are 18 or 28 leaving home is never easy. Exiting one’s comfort zone and leaving the people you love is challenging no matter what your age.

Thankfully, I had plenty experience of leaving home before I started my journey at Cranfield University.

My PhD Journey at Shrivenham – Part 2

I have always wanted to become a scientist, even when I was younger, so my family was never surprised I wanted to do a PhD. It is sometimes a little hard to explain to them what exactly I do, as no one in my family is a scientist, but they are always supportive and proud of what I do. With my friends, those that are not scientists are happy that I found something I enjoy, even if they may not understand exactly what I talk about sometimes. My more scientific friends are happy that I found an interesting scientific challenge to explore.

My background is as an analytical chemist and a forensic scientist. I have a BSc and an Erasmus Mundus Masters in Forensic Science, and after I finished my Masters, I worked for a while as a scientist. However, I always enjoyed research, so I knew that I wanted to do a PhD at some point. When I came across the position at Cranfield, I thought the project sounded interesting and applied.
