Professor in Geochemistry, School of Earth Sciences
Laura has always been very helpful and supportive, she can always give some constructive suggestions and lets me know where I should improve. And she can be so encouraging when she knows that I have come across some setbacks in my project.
I have seen how she nurtures, encourages and supports her PhD students to obtain their full academic potential, she does this in a friendly approachable way
[She] helps to create a research group that feels inclusive where all voices can be heard. Examples of this include non-alcohol centric group socials and observing / recognising holiday celebrations of all members of the group, for example Chinese New Year group celebrations.
