My name is Fernanda Zamboni, I am a native of Brazil and I am a trained pharmacist. I came to the University of Limerick in 2014 to study a taught master’s program in Biomedical Device Materials. Currently, I am a 4th year Structured Ph.D. student in Biomedical Engineering.
I started my engagement with the Postgraduate Students Union (PSU) when I was campaign manager for the PSU vice-president candidate in 2018. Then, I successfully ran for the position of postgraduate representative for the Faculty of Science and Engineering (2018/19) and now I am one of the Ph.D. representatives for the academic year of 2020/2021. I am very excited to be helping my fellow Ph.D. colleagues to thrive in their academic life and research.
