Institute of Physics awards
It was my great pleasure to be asked by the Institute of Physics (IoP) to provide some information graphic posters to form part of their displays for their annual awards ceremony. It was my job to explain the work of the ‘Early Career’ award winners – Dr Alexandra Olaya-Castro, Dr Jacopo Bertolotti and Professor Malte Gather.
Although the winners were all a joy to work with, explaining their work in such a short format (relative to its complexity) presented its own challenges – partly because, being (by its very nature) new research, much had never been explained in (almost) layman’s visuals before.
Still, who couldn't be honoured to be working on something tied to such illustrious names as Maxwell, Moseley and Paterson!
Anyway, here’s how they came out…

This is one of the awards that I was hoping to get this year. Well, I have focused on my work in physics this year, and I want to get recognized for it. I always try my best to help society, and I feel like I need to be rewarded for it. I know that this is not a good look at me, but I just want that award so bad. I hope that I can get my hands on it soon.
