image Thank You!

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my Director of Studies, Dr Victoria de Rijke and my two supervisors, Dr Loraine Leeson and Dr Mona Sakr for their continuous support of my PhD study and research. Their guidance helped me in all the time of research and writing my thesis.

I would also like to thank my partner, Mike Plews for his never-failing enthusiasm and support towards my studies.
