Craig Hoggett

Craig HoggettBSc (Hons) Process Biotechnology, 1997

Craig came here as a mature student, and went on to a PhD and a successful career in industry.

Two things in particular have been so important to my subsequent career: the explicit training in research methods and writing up results; and a lot of practice in presentation skills.
