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?
Although the summer break has started for most university students, primary school children are still engaged in lots of online science experiments thanks to the Physics Outreach Team. We are indeed still running weekly STEM sessions with a primary school we have been working with continuously since last year.
