As a supervisor I have been incredibly fortunate to work with some of the greatest and most talented PhD students. Each has come along and made an incredible contribution, not only to our scientific progress and understanding, but also to the research group environment.


As a supervisor you experience the laughs and the tears as your students go through the highs and lows of a PhD, seeing all of those below smile after viva and seeing many walk confidently across the stage in the Royal Albert Hall during graduation has made me incredibly proud.
