Working on the face visors during the pandemic felt like an achievement. As a result of that I was nominated for the COVID-19 Technician Award at Imperial College. I was in a secondment position helping teach courses in Molecular Bioengineering, so I was supporting the teaching of lab techniques and skills to students on the Molecular Bioengineering course. This also felt like a positive moment in my career.
My work varies greatly. I might be scheduling facility inductions, ensuring facility instruments are functioning properly and checking PPE stock levels. Sometimes research students ask me for chemicals, equipment, lab coats and other resources to help them in their research.
