My summer project entailed analysing stochastic effects in the context of the earliest stars, so-called Population III stars, and was awarded the Cormack Scholarship, offered by the Royal Society of Edinburgh. This topic had not been explored rigorously before and as such provided me with the immense opportunity of producing novel scientific results, as well as getting close to the research life, which is something I deeply wish to pursue in future.
