I studied engineering for the first year after school, before switching into science. I’ve thought about doing some more study in law
I’ve thought about studying physiotherapy and possibly medicine to see more of the clinical side of my research. I’ve also thought about getting an electricians license or another workshop qualification.
I did take a break from malaria research when I worked in England. I studied a parasite called Leishmania, that causes a lot of disease in developing countries. It is known as a “flesh eating parasite” cause it gets into the skin and causes these massive skin lesions and can eat away at the ears and the nose.. pretty gross! And if it gets into your internal organs, like your liver and your spleen, it can kill you. Nasty stuff!!
But if I was going to go back to uni and study I would like to do public health degree, which would teach me more about improving health care and treating diseases in the developing world.
Yes! I thought about studying english literature and politics as well as science but decided to concentrate on science, so I could graduate faster and start research as soon as possible!
I’m also thinking about studying public health as I’m interested in health systems in developing countries. I also find law really fascinating and would like to learn more about it. It’s a bit like science: you have to frame your case, and you have to have evidence.
