Christine - reasons for doing a PhD
Christine explains why she chose to do a PhD.

Can you remember why you did the PhD?

I did the PhD because I think I had a genuine love of my subject and I really felt a desire to do more work in it, to do a piece of independent work and to really take my ideas to their natural conclusion and to the sort of the highest possible level of achievement that I could so yes, I think that was the driving motivation.
