Weronika Natalia Nowicka
Postgraduate research student
I am a native of Zielona Gora, Poland and between 2008 and 2014 I was an undergraduate student in the University of Zielona Gora, studying for the undergraduate degrees in Biomedical Engineering and Automatic Control and Robotics. I was awarded the BSc degree for each of these two subjects with the ‘very good’ grade, which is the equivalent of a 1st class honours degree in the UK. I was awarded the master degree in Automatic Control and Robotics in 2015 with an ‘outstanding’ final grade – the grade that is awarded rarely to a student with exceptional results and the University prize for an outstanding thesis. After finishing my master degree I decided that I wished to specialize in control systems research and applied to Southampton, where I am currently in my 3rd of PhD research under the supervision of Dr Bing Chu, Professor Eric Rogers and Professor Owen Tutty on iterative learning control for wind turbines.
