Dr Tamsin Mather - volcanologist

A Volcanologist studies the impact of volcanoes on the atmosphere and our planet as a whole. Volcanologists often work to try to understand how to better predict eruptions and minimise the effects on people arising from them. They may use computer modelling or satellite imagery and often work on or around volcanoes...

Vicki Smith - physicist

Physicists are involved in a wide range of activities, including electronics, energy, space, transport, medicine and materials. Their work can involve designing and conducting experiments, simulating real-life problems and conditions in laboratories, or making a series of observations which are written up in...

Dr Martha Clokie - Microbiologist

Microbiologists study microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi, algae and protozoa. They are involved in many areas of work, including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, water and agriculture. A Levels: Biology, Maths, Chemistry

Dr Iain Staniland - marine biologist

Marine biologists study organisms in the world's oceans, ranging in size and complexity from viruses to whales. They examine how these organisms interact with the environment and with each other and measure the effects of human activities and environmental changes on marine ecosystems. A Levels: Biology, Maths,...

Dr Clare Postlethwaite - ice modeller

Computer modellers use computers to help them understand how the world works and to help predict what might happen in the future. Sea ice modellers use computer software to simulate how ice freezes, melts and moves and how different things such as ocean temperature affect it. A Levels: Maths, Further Maths, Biology...

Jamie Hannaford - hydrologist

Hydrologists are principally involved in monitoring, managing and conserving the Earth's freshwater resources. They study the quantity, trends and implications of freshwater in rivers, lakes, reservoirs, aquifers and glaciers. They also monitor and analyse rainfall. A Levels: Geography, History, Physics


Dr Matt Horstwood - geologist

Geosciences, or geology, are the scientific study of the structure, evolution and dynamics of the earth and its natural resources. A Levels: Biology, Geology, Chemistry

Dr Caroline Nichol - environmental physicist

Scottish Higher Qualifications: English, Chemistry, Biology, Geography, Economics

Sheila Kanani: Planetary Scientist

Sheila Kanani is a PhD student in Planetary Science working on using data from the Cassini Spacecraft at the Mullard Space Science laboratory at University College London. In this video, Sheila describes what happens in her workplace where every part of the spacecraft is designed, built and analysed with data...

Leo Garcia: PhD Student at the Institute of Cancer Research

This video describes the work of Leo Garcia, a PhD student at the Institute of Cancer Research working in the field of ultrasound elastography. In particular he is researching the use of this method in brain surgery to help guide the surgeon to find tumours and diagnose cancer. In the video, Leo describes how the...
