Coronal Mass Ejection seen by SOHO-LASCO
What's your work like?
It's very exciting. I've travelled to different observatories around the world, to places like America, Australia and the Canary Islands. I've also worked at the Goddard Space Flight Center in the USA (where SOHO operations are located). Most of my work involves analysing data on a computer, which is good since I like computers.
Working in solar physics is very interesting, especially with SOHO. The Sun is the only star we can get a really close look at, and it has a lot to teach us about how stars in general work.
What do you do outside work?
For sport I like to swim and play tennis, although I don't do these as much as I should! I like to read almost anything, but my main interest is science fiction books. I'm also learning to play the piano, but I'll not make a concert pianist just yet!
