I decided to study at the University of Southampton due to its outstanding international reputation in developing methods for survey sampling.

I have very high regard for the University of Southampton and for according me an opportunity to study Social Statistics. Soon after submitting my PhD thesis, I got hired as a Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist with the USAID-funded MEASURE Evaluation Project at Macro International

Following my first degree, I wanted to pursue further training in research methods. I saw the MSc Social Statistics as an excellent opportunity to expand my knowledge of the social sciences to include demography and epidemiology. The picture shows me doing the 2010 Great South Run (a 10 mile road race held in Portsmouth); running to raise money for the Stroke Association.

The combination of 'social' and 'statistics' appealed both to my statistical background and my desire to do something good for humankind.

In the summer of my second year, I was offered an internship at the FT. This really opened my eyes to the massive range of careers open to graduates who are proactive and enthusiastic.

In second year as part of the trip you go on a field trip. We visited the University of Kerala and learnt about a data set they were collecting on the Ageing Population. When we were back in the UK we had to use this data set to investigate our own mini research project.
