Prior to my undergraduate studies at the University of Manchester, I spent 5 years as a self-employed driving instructor. Volunteering with the IOP from 2014 allowed me to realise that teaching physics was much more rewarding than driving. I began my studies at UoM in 2015, have since attained MPhys, PGCE and PhD qualifications, and maintained my interest in both experimental research and education. During my PhD, I focussed on developing an imaging technique for quantum vortices in superfluid helium in the zero temperature limit, and am now focussing on applying the skills learned there to analogue gravity in the superfluid helium black hole experiment here in Nottingham.
