Danya Hodgetts

Danya learned during her research studies to surround herself with a great entourage. She still remembers collecting data on the beaches in Perth and sharing coffee, beers and ideas with her supervisors – sometimes not only limited to PhD studies – all while having ‘three thesis babies’.

She learned from her supervisors not to abuse a situation but to know when to take advantage of one: “It's better to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission.”

Danya is now an industry consultant and a researcher at CQUniversity. For all future research higher degree graduates, Danya emphasises the ‘team effort’ in research studies and recommends surrounding yourself with a strong support network to lean on.
