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.
