Camilla Babbage

PhD Candidate, Applied Psychology and Psychiatry

My name is Camilla and I’ve been at the University of Nottingham since 2012, as an Undergraduate in Psychology. I’ve continued on to do a Masters in Psychology Research Methods and am now in the 1st year of my PhD with the ESRC in Applied Psychology and Psychiatry. I’ve been involved in quite a few things whilst being here but most recently I was Coordinator of Student Minds, a facilitator of a support group called Positive Minds and the Postgraduate Coordinator of Welcome Week 2017. During this time I have been involved with many postgraduate events, meeting students who are new to the University or unaware of what is on offer from the University, and it was then I realised that I wanted to get more involved with the Postgraduate community. 

I work alongside Martina and together we hope to put on many events throughout the year that you will feel able to get involved with. One of us will be at the Graduate Centre every day and if you want to come ask us a question or have a chat, then please do drop us an email or come by the office when the door is open!

Martina Sykorova

ESRC PhD candidate, School of Health Sciences 

I am one of the Medicine and Health Science Graduate Centre Coordinators along with Camilla for the 2017/2018 academic year. Camilla and I are working on a job-share basis at least one hour a day. I was born in the Czech Republic where I completed my undergraduate and postgraduate degree in Public Health. Following an MRes in Business and Management at the Nottingham University Business School, I have started my PhD at the School of Health Sciences last year. Being a European student I understand the joys and struggles of studying abroad (and studying in a second language). It is a wonderful experience but studying away from family and friends can be challenging at times. Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to have a chat about your experience as an international student.

I cherish the opportunity to become part of the wider Graduate Centres Team to improve your experience of studying and working at the University of Nottingham. Camilla and I will be organising a number of training, social and craft events throughout 2017/2018. Please join us for these events or come talk to us over a cup of tea (we have some biscuits too!). We would love to hear your feedback and ideas to make your time at the University of Nottingham more productive and enjoyable. 

I look forward to meeting you!
