Favourite thing to do in my job: Challenging myself
My Work: Trying to find a relation between what happens to tiny things, what happens to huge things and what hapens to fast things
My Typical Day: Well as a physicist most of my day is spent just thinking about stuff ;)
My typical day is filled with calculating stuff, writing up reports and papers, reading other physicists’ work and discussing physics with my colleagues, topped with some gymnastics 😉
What I'd do with the prize money: Create an interactive website to play with different physics problems
