I live and study in Galway now, but am from Birmingham. I have a large family (5 sisters and 1 brother and my dog – Flash) and try to visit when I can, I call home at least every other day.
As Secretary of the NUIG Radio Society I help put on events and make notes. I am going to be part of (another) 24 hour takeover for charity on Flirt Fm on the 9th of March.
I am trying to make a device that works like a human brain
I use nano-wires on glass to make a network. When you put a voltage through it pathways form and break differently, creating some cool effects, which sometimes look like the types of things that can happen in a brain.
I get to work with a lot of cool equipment, one of my favourite is the SEM. It is a microscope that can get images at really high magnification. I use it to see what I have made and if it changes after tests.
My Typical Day
Reading papers and replying to emails, then going into the lab.
What I'd do with the money
Donating the money
I have too many ideas that I don’t think I could do enough justice and so I will be donating the money to those that have a full time job in communication and outreach activities.
I’d like to see small projects that could be used for school visits and also at the Galway Science and Technology Day.
