      I have always wanted to find a way to use both my maths knowledge (which I have always been good at) and my biology knowledge (which I really enjoy) so when I found out there were research topics within a field called mathematical medicine, I knew this was perfect for me. As for the specific topic of asthma, to be honest I decided on this mainly due to the university and supervisors. I believe it is really important to not only be interested in your area of research but also to be happy in the place you live and with the people you work with!
