Hello! Im Sam, after recently finishing a Master’s in Nanotechnology at Rhodes University in South Africa, I embarked on a PhD research program in Crystal engineering at UL as of December 2020.
I first got involved in student politics back at my former University in South Africa, serving on numerous student bodies including being the postgraduate representative for the department of chemistry, being part of student activists campaigning for free higher education in South Africa and serving on several STEM outreach initiatives in the surrounding areas.
Currently I’m serving as the PSU faculty officer in the Science and Engineering faculty as well as being the chairperson of faculty officers for the 21/22 academic year. Whether an academic matter or other matters related to your University of Limerick experience or faculty concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and I will do my best to help.
