Having enjoyed my bioengineering degree at Imperial College London, I am especially looking forward to the interdisciplinary nature of the Diamond CDT. My final year project was focused on developing electrochemical diagnostic techniques, in which I was allowed to be quite independent. Knowing that I wanted to carry on studying, my supervisor suggested that I contact the top people in the field, and a short Google chain led me here. An especially appealing aspect was the opportunity to experience up to four world-class universities in one handy package. I have great expectations for the MSc part of the course, which will teach me all things diamond, and develop those essential research skills for when the PhD part starts.
