“I hope that the transition from IT to TU, and the inclusion of LIT as a fellow institute, will open new opportunities for novel multidisciplinary courses and projects, expanding the possibilities for other individuals to follow a similar path to mine.”

I am currently working with CONFIRM, a world-leading SFI-funded smart manufacturing research centre. I recently completed my PhD in polymer engineering at AIT, which focused on the creation of personalised solid dosage forms.

My interest in engineering sparked from my love of physics, which led me to complete a BSc (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering in 2012 before emigrating from my home country of Venezuela.

In 2015, I undertook a master’s by research and subsequently earned my doctorate. It was a fantastic experience – one that has stood to me as a postdoctoral researcher working closely with academics and industrial partners on the cutting edge of polymer research and smart manufacturing.

I hope that the transition from IT to TU, and the inclusion of LIT as a fellow institute, will open new opportunities for novel multidisciplinary courses and projects, expanding the possibilities for other individuals to follow a similar path to mine.
