CV: Membership of Professional Bodies/Professional Qualifications



Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.



I am the founding member of Exeter's student chapter of SPIE, the first such student chapter in the physics department. We now have more than 20 members and have conducted some exciting funded events, such as travel to conferences, an observing night, an interdisciplinary photo competition to celebrate IYL2015, a well-attended trip to the Norman Lockyer Observatory in Sidmouth, and a outreach science fair.

We are currently planning events for the coming year and more info. can be found on our facebook page.
