Me and my Work: I shine lasers on diamonds with the hope of making a better computer (one day).
What were your career goals as a child?
Could you use glass instead of diamonds, as glass is cheaper? (1 comments)
Me and my Work: Over the shoulders of giants, to make small contributions for science by producing building blocks in the nanoscale (ex: nanotubes, nanowires, nanospheres).
Me and my Work: I analyse collision data on proton collisions from the Large Hadron Collider
Me and my Work: I’m a laser plasma physicist, which basically involves shooting ridiculously intense laser pulses at tiny targets and looking at all the stuff that comes flying off with a view to use this interaction, for example, to build a compact particle accelerator.
Status: wow, i can't believe it-**yay**! so so happy and thankful to all that voted for me and kept me here till the end, it's been a brilliant fortnight, spreading the joy of science, i've loved it! more answers to questions still to come if i can
Me and my Work: I do research in theoretical cosmology, using our knowledge of particle physics to understand how the universe began, and teach physics to university students.
Status: Sad to have lost, but it was great fun. Thanks all for your questions and votes. And congratulations, Ceri! You deserved to win.
