Did you have any experiences or opportunities during the PhD that equipped you for work afterwards?

Yes I think I had lots of very good experiences during my PhD. I think I was quite lucky that I was very, you know, active within my peer group of PhD students so that I did have opportunities to take part in graduates' seminars – which I was very active in. I did have opportunities to do teaching. I think that really helped me a lot in the world of work afterwards and in terms of being a confident public speaker, very confident in meeting people, often at very senior levels.
