Why I’m doing a PhD at HCRI
HCRI is a unique environment where academics, policy-makers and practitioners interact on a regular basis. As a historian, I am keen to be able to investigate the present-day implications of my research. And so, with colleagues such as these, it’ll be difficult to avoid interdisciplinary perspectives and collaborative opportunities.
