Nusrat Ahmad is a second-year optometry student at the University of Auckland. She has an interest in science and how it can be used to improve people’s wellbeing, including research of the brain and the eyes in particular. Through taking part in the Mātai Internship, she hopes to get a better understanding of how medical research works and how new treatments and devices are created. This will help her keep up with new developments in her field of study and inform the advice she gives to patients. During her time in the programme, Nusrat hopes to acquire knowledge and skills that she can use throughout her studies and career.
