What do you do?
I work at the University of London as a careers adviser. I carried out research at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory, MSSL, in University College London, UCL. At MSSL they build instruments for solar missions as well as doing science.
One of the instruments which we helped to build is the EUV Imaging Spectrometer, EIS, on a satellite called Hinode.
One summer I got the chance to go out to Japan to plan the observations made by the Hinode/EIS.
It was so exciting to know that I was sending commands up to the Hinode spacecraft.
Here I am with some other members of the Hinode team
