Teaching and Outreach
I have much experience of teaching and outreach activities.
I have taught at almost all levels at Imperial College. This includes:
- 1st year lab. Demonstrator for Electronics course
- 1 year lab: Supervisor for 1st Year Projects
- 3rd year lab: Demonstrator for Compton Scattering experiment
- MSc in Optics and Photonics: Demonstrator for assessed practicals, Supervisor for self-study projects
Over the last few years I have been managed the 'mini MOT' laboratory project for PhD students on the Controlled Quantum Dynamics and Quantum Systems Engineering courses. This course introduces the students to a range of concepts in experimental physics, including laser optics, spectroscopy and laser cooling.
I have experience of co-supervising 9 PhD students, and helping to manage a number of research projects and collaborations.
I am passionate about science outreach, and communicating my research to a wide audience. My outreach experience includes
- Hosting work experience pupils in the Centre for Cold Matter, Blackett Laboratory
- Giving talks to visiting work experience pupils,
- Hosting students for summer projects
- Co-developing the "Atom Day" project, an outreach scheme that introduces primary school pupils to atomic physics, through demonstrations, activities, music and dance.
- Giving talks and taking part in careers events at schools in London.
