    Thereby having been/being consistent in his approach.

    Hello.

    I wrote the sentence below and I am not sure about the bold part.

    His research experience has familiarized him with different areas of science and helped him recognize his interests, thereby having been/being consistent in his approach.

    Thanks.

    I'm afraid I don't know what you are trying to say in the portion I have coloured red. The rest of the sentence makes perfect sense without it.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    Thanks a lot. I rephrased it in the form of the sentence below. Is it fine?

    "His research experience has familiarized him with different areas of science and helped him recognize his interests and be consistent and determined in his decision to pursue his education in this field "
