My name is Natasha and I am originally from Wexford. I have been living in Cork for the past 8 years to peruse my passion for science! I love bringing my dog for a walk and PC gaming!
My Typical Day
I am in my final year of my PhD, which means I am completing my thesis (a long story about my research)! My day consists of waking up, making breakfast for myself and more importantly my dog! I have several meetings in a day, which are broken up with writing and analyzing all the data I have gathered from my experiments. My day normally ends at 5pm, unless I get into the flow of work, then it can be later!
What I'd do with the prize money
I would love to use the prize money to spark a passion for science in younger students! This could be achieved through science fairs demonstrating the importance of science, as well as fun online webinars for young children to see what science really is made of!
