Hi, I'm Anish Pandey and I studied Interdisciplinary PhD: Understanding competitive carriage within the human nasophaynx with specific reference to Neisserial species within Institute for Life Sciences at the University of Southampton.

In an information rich world, it is very important for a PhD student to be both well rounded scientifically as well as being an expert of one specific topic

I became interested in science throughout my undergraduate studies and, as a result, volunteered for research projects during my summers completing the BSc. Despite this, I was still unsure whether to devote myself to a 3-4 year research project, in the form of a PhD. Doing a Masters really helped me with this decision and I have been reaping the benefits of the extra experience, ever since. As a result, I am thoroughly enjoying my PhD and grateful for the opportunity that has been granted to me. The future is still very much far away (three years remain of my PhD) but for the moment I stay focused on my work and look to continue with my career in academia.

My research interests include environmental microbiology, antibiotic resistance, mucosal immunity and meningitis. My work involves a blend of disciplines, such as classical and molecular microbiology, immunology, genetics, biochemistry and statistics. Reading papers related to my research question requires rudimentary knowledge of several more.
