Meg, Medical Engineering PHD Student

Meet Meg

After spending most of her life moving schools, Meg has finally settled in Cardiff, Wales, UK.

At school she spent half of her time in the textiles rooms working on a new piece of clothing while the other half was spent in the maths and science building!

Whilst loving the freedom of being creative, designing and making something from scratch Meg also loved the rigidness of STEM subjects for always having a final answer!

She volunteered in Fiji building a women and children’s centre as part of a programme and thoroughly enjoyed the valuable experience.

Meg ended up going to university to study medical engineering and might be biased but says “it’s great because it means you have a chance in making people better, whether that’s through taking medication, medical devices, or rehabilitation.”

Meg is currently doing a PhD which is basically one big science experiment!

She loves getting to help people understand what happens to their brain when they hit their head repeatedly during sports such as football and rugby.
