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.
Innes is specialising in theoretical particle physics during her MSc (Physics).
When I was very young I was always very excited about understanding how things worked- I would take them apart and look inside, or drop them and see if they bounced. My curiosity extended to all avenues of the sciences, and with further study I found my way to the most fundamental path to understanding- down to the tiniest of constituents.
Studying at the University of Melbourne has meant having the flexibility to find what I enjoy studying the most, and explore all avenues which interest me. It has also meant developing a deeper understanding of my area of study before I chose to pursue it by engaging with excellent academic and research staff at the university. The highlight of my studies has been joining my current research group and being able to participate in the Centre of Excellence in Particle Physics (CoEPP) at the Terascale conference over last summer- where I presented some work I did while employed as a Summer Student.
My dream is to work in academia: I would love to be able to continue learning through research, and to share my knowledge with others via teaching.
