      Probably getting my Master’s degree, it was an awful lot of hard work and felt incredibly satisfying to finally get the degree after the four years of study. Since then it would probably be publishing my work in a peer reviewed journal.

      Probably getting my Masters degree in Product Design engineering, it took a lot of hard work and commitment!

      For me, my biggest success was perhaps finishing my Bachelors degree. I had a hard time imagining what I would be finally doing with it that I would find interesting, while working part-time, so it required a lot of persistence and hard work. My MSc and doctorate were achievements, but I enjoyed the process and although challenging I was doing what I wanted to do. If I hadn’t finished my BSc I would not have been able to do everything else though.

      So far, getting my Doctorate in Engineering (EngD). It was a four year long project on improving the science of screen printing functional inks and I went through many challenges, tears and triumps. There were points when I was afraid I wouldn’t finish it as I was worried my ideas weren’t good enough. Luckily, I found the confidence to try doing something no one had ever done before. I built a miniture screen printer that could be used with high speed imaging to assess how the ink behaves as it is deposited and separated from the screen. The results were able to proove and disprove theories that had been suggested for 30 years but never checked experimentally. It was also hard turning my work into a 250 page book and then getting it assessed by examiners. But it’s great now it’s done and been used to create thee journal papers so far (just finishing off the fourth and final one).
