Occupation: Bioservices Screening Technician, CABI Europe (UK Centre)
My Writtle University College
The Postgraduate Coordinator in particular supported and encouraged me to go ahead with my MSc at Writtle. Also during my degree I found the Writtle College career service very useful, and used it repeatedly for job hunting.
Whenever I think about Writtle, I will never be able to forget the good friend I made in a PhD student from Boswana. She was so supportive to me during my studies at Writtle which was exactly what I needed since I struggled with my two and half hour commute from South West London to Writtle every day.
My Career Path
During my dissertation research my supervisor, who was the postgraduate course manager introduced me to an industry contact from ATEI, Thessaloniki who was really supportive during my research. This industry contact later on invited me to ATEI after I had completed my studies to take part in a national research programme in Greece.
As plant microbiology is my passion, I decided to apply to join CABI. My area of expertise alongside my work experience in Greece supported my application to CABI and I am now work as a screening technician in their laboratories.
