Sarah Bath

"I first came to the University of Surrey to study for my undergraduate degree in Nutrition and Dietetics. I started working on iodine for my final year research project and loved the topic, so I decided to take it further for my PhD, which I began after spending a year-and-a-half in clinical practice."

"My supervisor, Margaret Rayman, was fantastic during my PhD and I learnt a huge amount by working with her. I was also very lucky to collaborate with other researchers throughout my PhD, including researchers from other universities and staff at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford.

I really enjoyed my PhD, but research is a challenge! Problems often arise that require you to think in a different way, or start again.

You have to be very motivated, committed and determined. I have been fortunate enough to continue with my research in iodine after completing my PhD. I am now working as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Nutritional Sciences here at the University."
