      Being a PhD student is great, you’re given a large amount of freedom to research and pursue interesting avenues in your work. PhD projects work with technology that is state of the art so researchers get to investigate novel ideas, which I really enjoy.

      However, that sometimes does come with its downsides as the problems you’re working on are novel so will not have a straightforward solution and will require alot of thought and creative thinking.
