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.
Paola is one of our current Msc Theoretical Physics students. In this blog article she tells us why she chose to study at the University of Edinburgh, and what her experience in the School of Physics and Astronomy has been so far.
