Student Profile(s)

Sanya Aggarwal

I got this position of research trainee in this project with the help of Dr. Mathis Riehle. During my course at the University of Glasgow, Dr. Riehle was my dissertation supervisor. I feel that doing an M.Sc. in Biotechnology at the University of Glasgow was one of the best decisions of my life. It added on to my experience in the field, improved my self-confidence and versatility. Working with Dr. Riehle on complex topic of protein engineered biomaterials was a great experience. He had been a great mentor. He was very helpful, supportive and provided me with the right motivation. When he heard that I was back in Glasgow and looking for experience he immediately stepped forward and informed about this project. He said he could recommend me if I was interested. I said yes and then I was asked to give an interview to the research director of IBREAM (Institute of Breeding Rare and Endangered African Mammals) and I was sent an acceptance letter. For the last 4 months I have been living at the Edinburgh Zoo and it has been a great experience. I don't think it could have gone any better. If it was not for Dr. Riehle and his confidence in me, I would not have achieved this.
