“The projects that are being conducted at the CASS Food Research Centre are quite diverse but what I like about the research group is that there is a sense of unity and community even in that diversity. I find it interesting that each time you present your unique work you, which in my case is very different from what others are doing, you are bound to get excellent constructive criticism and feedback which really adds value to your work and allows you to view your research in different lenses.
Also when undertaking a PhD by research there is a general overemphasis on the technical skills, but CASS is unique in that it also has a strong focus on equipping you with the ability to communicate your research to any audience and the ability to critique and analyse research material. So in the end you are not just a typical scientist with technical skills but rather an all-rounded scientist with technical, analytical and communication skills.”
