Why Strathclyde?
Women in Science

Here are some of our amazing Strathclyde Women in Science who are all working towards different goals and achievements across the sector.

Aurora Uras, Physics student
I always loved science and I had the opportunity to teach Mathematics and Physics as a private tutor for a while. Even if teaching isn't my future, being able to explain complexed phenomena using simple formulas always fascinated me.

Physics (MPhys)
Carolina Wani, Digital Health Systems

"At Strathclyde, the course has been everything I hoped it would be. It’s fast-paced and it’s innovative. At times it’s forced me to delve into my creative energy. You’re going into unknown areas. One of the first things I did on the course was to create a prototype app for people with rheumatoid arthritis in their hands."

Lisa McCann & Roma Maguire, Computer & Information Sciences

"The eSMART study is a European randomised controlled trial in five countries across Europe of our mobile phone-based remote patient monitoring system to support patients with cancer during their chemotherapy treatment."

Forensics was always my first choice of field study, and by pursuing this master’s program I have pursued my passion, and I am aiming to enrich my skills and experiences in the field. My goal is to pursue a job in Forensics and help with the advances in the field.
Sara Akhdar
Forensic Science (MSc)
Reshma Ranjit, Cancer Therapies (MSc)

"Cancer was the course I always wanted to do. It includes care-targeted therapies and advanced biomedical research labs and quite a few new subjects which are included are drug discovery and targeted therapies."

Kylie Ang She Tou, Advanced Pharmaceutical Manufacturing (MSc) student

"I got a very good job in Malaysia. I'm a Pharmacist, a registered Pharmacist. I can open my own pharmacy but I decided to come here to do my postgraduate study."

Reyam Enad, MSc Artificial Intelligence & Applications student
This Master’s degree has given me the knowledge and the hands-on experience I needed to set me on the track to become a successful Data Scientist. After graduation, I plan on taking employment as a data scientist to help to nourish the industry and be an effective contributor to AI and data science.
Reyam Kareem
Artificial Intelligence & Applications (MSc)
Maria Sahayaselvan, Forensic Science (MSc)

"Personally, for me, the most important aspect of the course was the mock outdoor crime scene exercise where students were asked to collect evidence from the scene and come back to the laboratory and analyse the evidence."

Christine Dufés, Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Science

"We've developed some new seek-and-destroy nanomedicines...and we've demonstrated that intravenous administration of this nanomedicine led to the complete disappearance of 70% of one type of [prostate cancer] tumour, and 50% of another type of [prostate cancer] tumour."
