PhD student Charlotte Neath is developing alternatives to antibiotics for use in the pig farming. By removing antibiotics from the meat supply chain, she hopes to reduce the global problem of antibiotic resistance.
"What I particularly like about being on the KESS 2 programme is that I am linked with an industrial partner, Feed, Food and Future Ltd. This means I can spend time at their head and gain skills outside of an academic environment."
"Doing my PhD at USW is great. I have really supportive academic supervisors and lab members whose input and guidance has been invaluable since starting here. I spend most of time at the Glyntaff campus; the views from the lab aren’t bad either!
"I am currently nine months into my PhD but I don’t think it’s ever too early to think about what you might like to do afterwards. I would really like to stay in academia and carry on with my research whilst lecturing. I might even have the chance to supervise my own students!"
