One of my most enjoyable moments at UWI relates to my research experiences and being able to implement, pilot and experiment with new technologies on campus. Given the diverse nature of the campus it is a great place experiment with ideas and test your proposed solutions to problems.
When implementing my projects campus staff were always willing to assist. When I say that I am not only referring to Academic staff I am also referring to ancillary and technical staff. Many of my research projects required assistance from various campus staff and they were always willing and ready to help. Furthermore, they would show genuine interest in your activities attending seminars and showing support.
In my career, the guidance provided by my research supervisor Dr. Mechelle Gittens has improved my research and analytical skills. Additionally, she also shares her experiences which often proved helpful in the workplace and in my research. Many of the research strategies and approaches she introduced to me have resulted in both international opportunities to share my work as well as collaboration leading to further work.
