CERN, BBC Scotland
PhD student in optical medical imaging
The University of Edinburgh
I’m a PhD student in Edinburgh, with a serious love of Bake Off and books
I squash cells and use new types of imaging using lasers to see how squishy they are to find out more about cancer
My Typical Day
My day always starts with a cup of coffee and a cycle to uni – after that I usually do some coding, run experiments, and solve some problems.
What I'd do with the money
I’d use it to show people how amazing engineering is with electronic LEGO
I want to use Brixo LEGO blocks (www.getbrixo.com) to show people how many amazing things are made possible by engineering! I want people to be able to use their imagination and build something really exciting. I especially want to make this available to more remote places like the Highlands where these sort of activities aren’t usually available.
