Unprecedented in the UK, Europe and the US, this yearly Graduate Summer School is a two-week intense international workshop that brings together all the skills (both linguistic and palaeographic) needed to access, decode and interpret Edo-period printed and handwritten materials.
I have been interested in volcanoes for well over 30 years. My research group, in the Department of Earth Sciences, studies magmatic processes. We want to answer simple questions. How is magma generated? How does it move towards the surface? Where is it stored before volcanic eruptions? What is the relationship between magmatism and environmental change?
Since high school I have been fascinated by Particle Physics. The fact that humankind has been able to develop a profound understanding of nature at this most fundamental level is a remarkable achievement.
