Kateryna also added that the experience enabled her to hone her skills by researching and understanding research methods that are quantitative and qualitative.

Contributing to Science

“The research that makes up the PhD has to be an original contribution to science,” she said. “It has to be something completely new which no one has done before.”

She explained that being able to attain her PhD would be her own greatest achievement.

“It is the highest academic degree you can be awarded,” she said.

To ensure her fullest contribution to her profession, Kateryna has dedicated more than a year to her work. During this time, she has incorporated her experience, collected various data, analysed the results and written the conclusion.
