“I was initially encouraged to move to Queen’s because of the strong research that was already being carried out, as well as the state-of-the art lab facilities, which include virtual reality technology. Once at Queen’s, I was particularly impressed with the supportive environment for new lecturers, including mentorship from more senior academics.” Dr Ioana Latu
