“As a Biology student, I really enjoy working with Dr Kirsten Sadler Edepli from whom I’ve gained valuable research experience. I also get the opportunity to work with zebrafish as a model organism, which is super cool! In addition, participating in a variety of events geared towards visiting students has allowed me to better understand the local culture and traditions, to explore parts of the UAE I would not have been able to otherwise, as well as connect with different people.”
