Sarah Aldridge –
PhD Student in College of Engineering
“My PhD is in collaboration with the remains from Henry VIII’s sunken warship:
The Mary Rose. By merging the fields of engineering, sports science, osteology
and genetics, we are hoping to identify a team of archers believed to be
aboard at the time of sinking. Swansea’s state-of-the-art imaging facility is
equipped with a microCT machine, which I can use to non-destructively
examine the internal structure of the arm bones from the alleged archers.
I chose to do a PhD because I love being in academia. To be able to work
professionally in a subject that I love, and actually contribute towards the
knowledge in that field, for me, is a very exciting prospect.
Swansea’s College of Engineering is a very diverse environment. Being
multidisciplinary myself, I find it really helpful to work with researchers from
so many different backgrounds to bounce ideas off.”
