As a Technical Tutor, I support analytical chemistry teaching and research, including ensuring that analytical equipment is fully operational and available to staff and students in the School. Analytical chemistry in Middlesex University involves mass spectrometry and electron microscopy liquid chromatography among other many techniques.
Analytical chemistry is a fast moving field and the expertise required to keep up with changes in instrumentation and techniques is both rewarding and challenging.
The campus at Hendon has state of the art laboratories and installations, which convinced me to study here. It is an easy commute from where I live (east London) and at Middlesex there is a real commitment to climb the University ranking tables which makes it very attractive to study here.
Before taking the decision to study a Masters degree, I had experience in the field of remediation of contaminated soil. The program offered in Environmental Pollution Control suited me well in terms of developing the skills I had gained in the past and also to explore other areas in my field.
I enjoyed the practical aspects of the course, and my teachers' interesting lectures.
The people I met during my four years as a Middlesex University student, from classmates, professors, supervisors and technical staff.
At Middlesex University there is a real commitment to giving our students a real opportunity to get jobs after graduation.
I was given the opportunity to work in state of the art laboratories with equipment that will allow me to have experience on state of the art techniques. I had a multidisciplinary group of supervisors that help me on different aspects of my research.
Take time to reflect on day to day activities
Enjoy your time as a student (it goes too fast)
I would like to establish a high degree of expertise in more than one analytical technique at Middlesex University. I am also collaborating with different research groups at Middlesex that will produce publications on high impact journals.
