What are your main work duties?

Ecotoxicologist: This involves the daily running of the laboratory. I conduct tests and different investigations for various consultancies. An important and ongoing role is the development and optimisation of new tests.

What helped you to get your job?

After completing my degree I took six months off to travel. I then returned to do volunteer work at the university for five months before commencing my honours year.

Work experience gained during this time was really valuable for helping me work out what I wanted to do with my further studies and employment.
