"SCI, especially the Scotland group, has been supportive in playing a vital role in my pursuit of being a 'whole-researcher'".
What are your research interests?
My current research is in a promising area that has the potential of converting natural gas (mainly methane gas) to petrochemical feed stock via a process known as the oxidative coupling of methane (OCM).
How did you first get involved with SCI?
I heard about SCI via an announcement by the SCI Scotland group calling for entry into a PhD Essay Competition.
What do you hope to gain from your involvement with SCI?
Apart from the free one year membership I am currently partaking of, I hope to network with researchers in the same interest group, get all other benefits SCI members are entitled to which ranges from awards, conference discount to publication in journals. As an Ambassador here in Aberdeen, I hope to spread these good tidings to other researchers and students in my school.
Why would you encourage your peers to join SCI?
SCI, especially the Scotland group, has been supportive in playing a vital role in my pursuit of being a 'whole-researcher'. From providing a platform to meeting other researchers, to receiving grants and having opportunity of being heard. I tip SCI as one of the best groups that communicates with researchers at an individual level.
