Research interests or career goals
I’d like to specialise in mental health research, hopefully working on clinical trials. I would love to do a PhD at some point in the future along the same topic.
Why I chose LSHTM/my course
I really wanted to experience studying and living in London and I have heard only amazing things about the teaching and research undertaken at LSHTM. As well as this, the course sounded really interesting, particularly the amount of coding we are exposed to. Coming from a mathematical background, I was also really excited to learn more about the biology side of Medical Statistics; having not studied science for quite a few years I was looking for a course that offered an intensive biology background as well as plenty of opportunities to advance my mathematical knowledge. I also loved how open and global LSHTM felt on the open day, it felt like such a friendly and inspirational environment.
