Your name: Dr Yolanda Ohene
Your degree course: MSci Physics with a year in Europe
Year you graduated: 2013
Current role: Postdoctoral Researcher
Most useful module looking back: Electromagnetism (with Professor Michele Dougherty who was such an inspirational lecturer) was my most useful module, as now my research involves developing new ways to image the brain using MRI scanners.
Who’s been an inspirational Black scientist for you and why: Dr Chanda Prescod-Weinstein is a theoretical physicist and a feminist theorist who inspires me because she is pushing the boundaries in our understanding of intersectionality and physics.
