STUDENT OF PHYSICS
‘Physics speaks to me because it is a rigorous way to describe the world. I like the rewarding feeling of solving difficult equations and getting results that tell us something about the natural world. There is also the community aspect of it; doing physics is great, but doing it with people who share your interest is even greater.
At the moment I'm doing a research project about 'track finding'. To discover new particles, physicists shoot high energy particles against each other so that they collide and explode. The remnants of these explosions can tell us something about the structure of the universe. To know what particles were produced, you need to know their mass, charge and the other properties which define them, for which you need to know their trajectory through the detector. In my research I am trying to find new methods for finding these trajectories.’
