Project Term: 01/2015 - 04/2020
Role: Research Assistant
Hypervelocity meteor impacts and their effects on Earth. This utilised independent research skills, reading demanding texts, computer programming, problem solving and math skills. Setting objectives and deadlines was necessary due to time constraints. My project findings were defended during a presentation in a research conference style talk. Some of our findings were deemed appropriate for publication in an academic paper.
ESO XP49 Projeckt
I was the team leader with four colleagues. We hosted a discussion at the University of Kent for A-level students and teachers to give their views on ideas for refreshing physics. This required a 30 minute presentation of complex information in a clear and concise manner. This gave me valuable experience in group presentation techniques, and to manage my time effectively. I learnt to work as part of a team, communicate ideas and difficult concepts effectively, write a report and to work to deadlines.
Description coming soon.
