Final Year DPhil, Lady Margaret Hall

Ping Shen

My name is Ping Shen and I am a final year DPhil student from Engineering Science department in University of Oxford. My research topic is engineered safety barrier for geowaste disposal. This project is affiliated with Nuclear Decommissioning Authority which would one day influence the government decision regarding on the usage of nuclear power.

I have completed my Chemical Engineering (MEng) degree in Imperial College, London and I have spent one year exchange in University of Melbourne, Australia. During my DPhil time in oxford, I became co-founder of a wastewater treatment start-up project which was selected as the top ten team worldwide in a start-up business pitch competition (Thought For Food, 2015 Global Summit). Our project was established to introduce an innovative process line that reduces energy cost in industrial waste water treatment with forward osmosis membrane technology. We undertook a three-month online business training and one-week business boot-camp in Zurich.

After Oxford I will be working as a strategic consultant associate which provides consulting service on behalf of Dubai leadership, in public sectors such as Dubai Multi Commodity Centre.
