a career in environmental management, probably in the water industry. After completing my BSc, I helped to organise a major diving expedition to South America, which won a national award presented by the Duke of Edinburgh.
"I returned to Heriot-Watt to research the use of seaweeds in environmental assessment for my PhD. This research combined with the applied first degree helped me get a job involved with the implementation of EU water policy in Northern Ireland."
