Hi, please call me Lia! Welcome to my personal website. I am currently an EPSRC Doctoral Fellow at University College London where I also run the Women in Physics Group.

I didn't win Famelab UK....

I had the honour of being one of 10 finalists at Famelab UK, held in the Royal Institution. It was amazing, but daunting...I actually got to speak in the same lecture theatre as Faraday. And I didn't crap myself. Pretty good going. 

Anyway, here is a photo of me talking, excuse camera phone quality.

I didn't win. But the winner, Andrew Steele did, and he was excellent. He deserved to go on to represent the UK in the Famelab International finals at Cheltenham Science Festival! Me and TheQuantumWorkshop will be there too btw if anyone wants to see our stand as well. 

So support Andrew - he's @statto on Twitter and his website is here

Anyway, for those who want to know what I actually said for my 3min performance...here is a YouTube recording that I managed to eek out afterwards. I look TIRED. 

UPDATE: my talk at the RI is now on Youtube! See below!
