“ My experience as a postdoctoral researcher in CNIE has definitely broadened my scientific interests. The high multidisciplinary and innovative nature of the centre, combined with a great knowledge transfer at internal and international level, has allowed me exposure to cutting edge science previously unknown to me. I had the opportunity to closely work with top scientists from engineering, chemistry, applied mechanics, physics and computer science in an environment with state-of-the-art facilities. The centre spares no effort to increase our visibility, for instance, supporting our participation and organization of prestigious conferences and public events. As a researcher who was pursuing a career in academia, this had tremendous value.”
Lilian de Martin Assistant Professor at Chalmers University of Technology
“ Joining the CNIE for my MEng research project allowed me to discover that the research opportunities within the group represent a largely unexplored avenue for innovation in engineering. I received a great deal of support from both the group and my supervisors which helped me develop my work into the basis for my PhD. This would not have been possible if not for the calibre of researchers I was working alongside. My involvement also gave me an insight into the notable accomplishments of other students in the centre, and the opportunities for collaboration within a wider network of researchers. For these reasons, I decided to remain in the centre to do my PhD as I believed it to be the best place for me to develop my skillset as a researcher.”
