A young scientist's notebook
by Ekaterina Baibuz
Hi, I'm Ekaterina, The Science Basement team member. I'm doing my PhD in Physics. I'm a story teller. My stories are built around science. I like to explore topics that I have absolutely no clue about and then share what I've discovered.
Prof. Lucie Green is a solar physicist based at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory, UCL’s Department of Space and Climate Physics. Besides being a great scientist, Lucie Green is also an inspiring science communicator and is very active in public engagement with science. She gives public talks regularly and is a television and radio host. In 2016, she published her first book 15 Million Degrees: A journey to the centre of the Sun, which discusses the history of solar physics until the current research and the “hot topics” of the field.
An unusual encounter in an intercity train in Russia turned into an adventure of exploring the topic of artistic research. How do artists do research? Explained by a physicist.
