Carlos Asensio Regalado

Carlos Asensio Regalado completed his Polymers, Colorants and Fine Chemicals MSc in 2017 and is currently a PhD student in the Analytical Chemistry department at the University of the Basque Country.

“I really enjoyed my time at Leeds. For me, one of the high notes of the course was how industry-led it was. For instance, the number of projects offered for the final research project were either related to industry or carried out directly with a company. This exceeded my expectations. This opportunity also helped me realise how important it is to bear in mind the applicability of your research to real-world environment."
