“My research could be used in the conservation of wildlife, such as bumblebees, that desperately need our help”

“The Focus of my research is on package recommendations. My work will present individual items in suitable package for a costumer’s convenience, for example a clothing outfit. The practical aspects of my work are extensive. I apply my work to a range of everyday life contexts such as tourism, food and gardening. One of my main focuses is clothing. I use three main considerations when applying my system to clothing and these are; the colour, the pattern and what the occasion is. I am hoping to expand my research in order to recommend accessories to my customers as well. My work can also be used to help gardeners. My research could be used in the conservation of wildlife, such as bumblebees, that desperately need our help. This can be achieved by advising gardeners on the best combination of plants for the wildlife’s needs."

“The University of Aberdeen has successfully managed to evolve, making it an ideal place to study computing science, whilst retaining the charm of an ancient University”

                “I am currently a lecturer at Telkom University in Indonesia and I was seeking to expand my research experience. The University of Aberdeen immediately stood out to me. The staff are internationally recognised. I had previously read the work of the staff here and I am now fortunate enough to have them as my supervisors. The facilities that the University of Aberdeen can provide are endless. I have been fortunate enough to have access to the one of the University’s super computer which I have used extensively in my research. The University of Aberdeen is an ancient University which has successfully managed to evolve, making it an ideal place to study computing science. The research that is undertaken here remains at the same world-leading level as it was in 1495!”

“Aberdeen’s international community has made me feel very welcome”

                “The support offered to me since arriving in Aberdeen has been incredible. Even before I arrived, the University helped me prepare for life in Scotland. The University of Aberdeen accommodation website helped me massively when moving from Indonesia. I knew that I was moving to a comfortable flat provided to me by a trustworthy source. Once I arrived I was immersed in Aberdeen’s diverse community. There is an active Indonesian Students Association, which currently has several enthusiastic members, making it a great place to make connections with people from home. We also hold a variety of events, such as the Indonesian cultural shows, which has helped us to share our culture with the global audience which is the University of Aberdeen. I am also able to use the incredible sports facilities on offer at the Aberdeen Sports Village. This is situated only a five minute walk away from campus. I regularly play badminton with my friends as a break from my research.”

 

 “I am hopeful of using my research to develop an online clothing store”

          “Once I complete my studies in Aberdeen I will return to Telekom University to continue my lecturing. I believe that the skills that I have developed at the University will help me to no end. The additional courses available to me here have been extremely useful, such as the time management course. Alongside my teaching commitments, I am hopeful of using my research to develop an online clothing store that will offer clothing to people of all body types.”
