In my third year of my MPhys degree I was considering a career in research. Although, I first wanted to gain experience in a research setting as I previously had none. So, I applied for a summer project organised by the School of Physics and Astronomy.
I was accepted to take part in a project titled:
„Super-resolution emulation beyond the standard cosmology”
– a mouthful of a title that I knew very little about.
Earlier this year, Daniel Hodgson became the Director of Edinburgh Complex Fluid Partnership (ECFP), the knowledge exchange arm of the Soft Matter and Biological Physics research group at the University of Edinburgh. ECFP was set up in 2012 on the back of an EPSRC grant to translate the fundamental understanding from research into industrial problems. Since then it’s grown and worked with over 50 companies. Daniel is from Cumbria, from a small town on the edge of the Lake District.
MSc Particle and Nuclear Physics students Clara, Peter, Seb, Stephen, George and Daniel made a science communication video as a part of their Research Skills course. We asked them how they managed to explain the nuts and bolts of neutrino physics in a digestible way.
