      Hello Harrietxx – I think the thing I like best is using my science knowledge to change how we do things and hopefully improve things for patients, for example by reducing the radiation dose they receive or making their scans quicker. Similar to the others, it’s great feeling you can change the understanding of something, which you can then use to help people.

      Hey harrietxx!

      My favourite thing in science is the possibility to discover or contribute to something that no one has ever thought of before!

      As part of volcanology though, my favourite thing is being able to travel and visit different volcanoes around the world.

      What’s your favourite?

      Hi harrietxx! My favorite thing: “talking science”.
      My favorite thing in science is to present my research work to a huge audience from different background. And to tell them the importance and scope of my piece of work. For example, I presented my work about creating new medicine for getting rid of deadly diseases in front of a big audience and they all asked many questions and they showed their interest. I really enjoy discussing things about science.

      Hi harrietxx

      My favourite topic in science is Microbiology (the study of small things, such as bacteria and viruses). I think it’s fascinating that things so small can have such a huge effect on humans and the world in general!
