Graduation year: 2020

Favourite modules: The computing modules were by far my most enjoyable and most useful modules. This especially includes the Complexity and Networks module in my third year, I can not overstate how useful the applications this showed me have been in my current role.

Tell us about a Black physicist who's inspired you: Everyone who has come before me has shown me that there is no ceiling, meaning you really can go places if you apply yourself. This extends from everyone in The Blackett Lab Family to ‘celebrity’ Physicists such as Dr Neil DeGrasse Tyson.
