Controlling the properties of light with nanoscience

Julia Lawless (PhD student, Trinity College Dublin)
I completed my undergraduate degree in Physics and Astrophysics in 2018. From there, I decided to change courses and took a PhD position in Trinity College, studying nanoscience. I focus mainly on combining gold nanoparticles and 2D materials and investigating how light interacts with these structures.

Shedding Some Light on Dark Matter

Conor McGrath (PhD Student, University College Dublin)
I am a 3rd year PhD student in UCD's High Energy Astrophysics research group. I also have a BSc in Theoretical Physics from Maynooth University and an MSc in Space Science and Technology from UCD. On Earth I have a great passion for music, sport and am a self proclaimed "beer nerd". Some of my most enjoyable and inspiring science related conversations have occurred in or near a pub (pint optional!) and I'm looking forward to having another one of these at Pint of Science 2022.

Quantum thermometer for the coldest temperatures in the Universe

Mark Mitchison (Assistant Professor in Quantum Science at Trinity College Dublin)
Mark was born and raised in southwest London. He did his undergraduate degree in physics at the University of Leeds and his PhD at Imperial College London. He then worked for two years in Ulm, Germany before moving to Dublin in 2018. Since 2021 he has led the ToCQS group at Trinity, which works to understand the fundamental limits of measurement in quantum physics.

Hubble, double jets and trouble

Jessica Erkal (PhD, MSc, BA)
I recently completed my PhD in Star Formation in UCD where my research focussed on jets from young stars and their role in star and planet formation. I have a B.A. in Physics and Astrophysics from TCD, and an MSc in Space Science & Technology from UCD. When I’m not staring into space, you can find me in art museums, cafes, bookshops or travelling.
