Physics, to me, is as much an exercise in human ingenuity as it is an endeavour to improve the quality of life through applied understanding.
Studying at Berkeley [during exchange], a university with a strong leaning towards my area of interest, was incredibly eye opening and gave me the drive I needed to be sure I could undertake graduate studies.
Consider and be open to the freedom you could have at Melbourne with the Bachelor of Science, as you are able to select from so many different subject disciplines (in first year especially) that it's very easy to tailor a degree to you and what you like.
Ling Sun is making valuable contributions toward international research efforts on gravitational waves, particularly in the data analysis field.
Studying distant galaxies helps us to determine the properties of galaxies in the early universe, and to understand how these galaxies evolve into the galaxies we see in the nearby universe today.
Daniel Flynn’s PhD research explores physics beyond the Standard Model inside atoms and molecules.
The highlight of my studies has been joining my current research group and being able to present at the Centre of Excellence in Particle Physics (CoEPP) at the Terascale conference over last summer.
