I'm working on a great series at the moment over on Headstuff, chatting with early-stage researchers. We're calling it 'Shot of Scientist' and it has been an amazing experience.
About once a week, I chat to a scientist, researcher, or post-grad about the work they're currently doing. So far, I've spoken with a psychologist, a microbiologist, physicist and soil scientist. I can't believe the extraordinary range of research that's being done in Ireland (and around the world) and the far-reaching implications of all these disparate things. It really is phenomenal.
You can see the whole series here and my own contributions are below.
