Me and my Work: I can use single atoms to make nanowires which are 1000x thinner than your hair! These are used to make devices that either create electricity from light (solar cells) or use electricity to make light (light-emmiting diodes, LEDs).

Me and my Work: I hunt subatomic ghosts. These ghosts hold the answers to some of the biggest questions in the universe. So they’re awfully hard to catch… but it’s worth the chase!

Status: Had an excellent two weeks in the Light Zone! Thanks to everyone involved -- the mods for organising, all the scientists for interesting discussion, and of course the students for their great questions and enthusiasm! Special thanks to the Wellcome Trust and IoP for making the Light Zone happen! :-)
