      For me, I chose to do research because I wanted to learn more about autism, and work towards helping children. The research we do is helping to design a robot-based intervention and I love that I get to work with young people and hopefully contribute to an effective intervention that could be used in schools.

      Quite simply it was what i enjoyed most, and in further education being able to define my interest to biology and animals made me even happier. So my choice was made easy for me, I’d say always pursue what you enjoy!
