One on One with: Research & Operations Intern

24 Sep 2019 12:10 PM

Yifan Wu, 19, is our latest Research & Operations intern, who studies Biological Science at Imperial College London. Slotting in nicely to the Frontier team, he's carried out fantastic work such as LaTex coding! We decided to quiz him about his few days on placement with us...


What's one thing you’ve done on the placement?

I practised the skill of LaTex coding through writing scientific reports.


What did you enjoy most?

The Friday morning quiz!


Who would you recommend it to?

The university colleagues and friends who want to be volunteers.


The verdict?

It was a lovely three-day work-shadowing experience in Frontier, as I met so many nice and kind co-workers and had some interesting work experience in R&D department. Apart from that, this experience has provided me with more insight as to how NGOs work, and how they contribute efforts to the career of biodiversity conservation.
