Following my PhD, I continued to do more research, but also worked corporate roles, as I wanted to get some experience outside of academia. I really enjoyed working in the corporate world, but I missed being a researcher. So, I applied for various opportunities and was successful at my current MSCA fellowship. Through this project, I look at ways of improving fracture healing times, by monitoring bone cell growth on hydrogel scaffolds/bone-on-chip devices, with the aid of non-invasive spectroscopic techniques.
I have absolutely enjoyed coming over to Europe! Being able to live and travel through Europe has always been a dream of mine, and thanks to my fellowship which opened up a researcher mobility opportunity for me, I am able to enjoy that experience alongside my research project!
