I spent a bit of time in first year (learning about and) programming an Arduino – a pathfinding autonomous driving robot, as well a temperature sensor, using the change in resistance of a thermal conductor to calculate precise temperatures. Both of these projects lead me to learn a bit about C++ as previous to this, […]

## Post Exams, Pre … ? (Masters || Work)

Two weeks ago, I completed the last of my exams (Quantum Mechanics and Symmetry, and Statistical Physics) and two major assignments (a group project in which we made a game in Unity 3D, as well as my dissertation Scattering Amplitudes), which finalised everything that I had to do for my undergraduate studies. Now, I have […]

## GWs: General introduction

The topic I would like to ask or interrogate is how fourier analysis is used to sort out and measure the effects of a black hole merger by measuring the effects of GWs stretching and bending the arms of an interferometer. A few pointers to get the audience interested in what GW’s are: Gravitational waves are […]

## Two approaches to researching GWs.

For two of my modules this semester, we have been given free reign over the choice of topic – so I am using this opportunity to delve further into gravitational waves. One aspect I will approach this from a numerical and mathematical approach, and the other will be an essay approach. I would like to […]
