Most useful module looking back: It's hard to pick one. I loved General Relativity just because of its "coolness". It was something I had been reading about since I was a kid so to get to the stage where I had the physics and maths skills/knowledge to study it properly was like, wow that's cool!!
Tell us about an inspirational Black scientist you admire and why: I admire many, so it’s hard to choose one. But I admire the ancient Egyptians who, if you ignore Hollywood and focus on the pictures they drew of themselves, I think it would be ok to label them as Black. They were amazing and their scientific ingenuity is unparalleled.
