It’s the end of the semester and almost time for the MPhys students to share their work at the end of year presentations. These presentations are open to anyone to attend, so if you’ve been considering an MPhys year or are interested in learning a bit about the current research being undertaken, why not go along? I spoke to two students about their research projects to get an idea of what to expect.

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.
During the summer, Jen Struthers (MPhys Physics, year 5) and Azal Shahbaz (MChem Chemistry, year 4) undertook internships with the School of Physics and Astronomy’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion team. What did their roles entail? And what skills did they gain?
