I shared my CV transformation from Word to LaTeX on my Instagram and sent out a question box to get your questions – here are some answers to those questions! What is LaTeX? LaTeX is a document preparation system that focuses more on the content rather than the looks of the document. It’s mostly used […]Read More Answering your questions about LaTeX
Back in October 2019 I carried out my first ever experiment at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in California. In case you didn’t know I’m a laser physicist from Imperial College London that is acting as a visiting researcher at SLAC. More specifically though, I work in the Matter under Extreme Conditions lab. Here, we […]Read More My most recent experiment
For those of you that don’t know me I’m a laser physicist and I’m currently a visiting researcher at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in California. I was born in West London so I’m currently sheltering in place away from home .. certainly missing my family and friends. During the shelter-in-place in California, I […]Read More What does a laser physicist do whilst working from home?
Just a few days ago I received some awesome news! I PASSED MY MASTERS Let’s just say that there were a few obstacles on the way, but if I were to give my younger self advice, I would say, don’t let the haters make you believe that you can’t achieve something. So, what […]Read More I’ve passed my masters!
I started out my laser physics career at university. I went to Imperial College in London to study physics. Along the way, I was introduced to lasers, and that’s where my love for lasers began – in the plasma physics group at Imperial. From there, Mike Dunne, an Imperial College alumni, and director of LCLS […]Read More What it’s like working in a US national lab
I’ve been in the US doing research at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in California in the US for about 2 years now. It was incredibly tough leaving my lovely friends and family in the UK to then experience a whole new challenge in a new country where I didn’t know a single person. It. […]Read More The difference I’ve noticed between science in the UK and the US
You might already know this, but I’m a laser/plasma physicist and I’m just about to finish my masters in research in Photonics from Imperial College. I am currently working at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in California, where my current research is basically in the field of laboratory astrophysics – recreating the conditions found in space […]Read More Things I’ve learnt on my first experiment
Last month, I wrote my first ever proposal! It was quite nerve-wracking because I’m still not a PhD student yet and I felt like I wasn’t knowledgeable enough to write a proposal.. I thought they were always things written by professors. But.. I overcame the whole imposter syndrome thing and told myself.. what have I […]Read More Proposal Writing
One of my Instagram followers kindly asked me to write a blog post about how I manage to produce a radio show, write articles for Forbes, keep up with social media, take part in science events, do a masters, socialise and also find time for sleep! The real answer is I don’t have a clue! […]Read More How I manage my time
Two years after exhibiting with Tokamak Energy at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition, I’m back this year but this time with the Make A Supernova group! It’s a collaboration of scientists from Imperial College, AWE and the University of Oxford that all work on laboratory astrophysics. The aim of the stand is to get […]Read More Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2017
