      Hey charljess, ghickman and dinkydeanna!

      Volcanoes really interest me because they are so majestic, yet also so powerful! When they erupt they are amazing to watch, but can also cause huge amounts of death and destruction. I really want to be a part of the team effort to make volcanoes safer places for the people that live near them.

      Hey charljess, ghickman and dinkydeanna
      I think for a long time I wanted to work out how I could get a job that used science stuff and skills but also kept in touch with the real world and let me help people.

      I think this is why working as a Medical Physicist in Nuclear Medicine interests me so much because I can do both those things.

      I also think the way Nuclear Medicine works is so clever and love the fact it can be used in so many different ways – from diagnosing heart problems; diagnosing, monitoring and treating cancer; finding blood clots in people’s lungs; finding blockages in the the digestive system; looking at problems with people’s kidneys……the list is endless!

      Hey all of you! here is the answer of your interesting question:
      The exciting moment is, when I am about to get my results of some difficult, challenging and lengthy experiment. Doesn’t matter, how tired I am , I become fresh and energetic once again, when I see good and promising results. Positive results really encourage me to do more and more science stuff.
