Today’s guest showed up in a T-shirt reading “This is what a feminist looks like” and has given up jiu-jitsu for roller derby, only to find this sport equally intense. He struggled to make the most of his studies, having been diagnosed with dyslexia only recently.

His skills are of real value in his work on the understanding of materials at the nanoscale.
This is an episode in the first series of “Potential Difference”, presented and produced by Radu Sporea. You can download the file here.
In this series I interview some of my young colleagues, PhD students and researchers from the Advanced Technology Institute at the University of Surrey. They may not be household names (yet), but they are a the forefront of international research and have great stories to tell. Listen to their impressions on their work and on life as a researcher.
