She is now doing a DPhil in the Structural Genomics Consortium, an NDM unit. She found that the DPhil project on offer and the Department particularly appealing, due to the extensive experience in X-ray crystallography - a technique that she was keen to learn. She thinks Oxford is a beautiful city to live in and really enjoys college life.
