Dr Helen Czerski

Helen is a physicist with a love for the natural world, and cares deeply about exploring the ideas and challenges in the physical world around us. Even the most familiar daily objects can open the door to the way the universe ticks, and she thinks that everyone should feel comfortable in playing with that world. Her twin passions in physics are the under-appreciated ingenuity of the everyday world and the physical engine of Earth: our atmosphere and oceans. Her research focusses on the physics of the ocean surface, especially the bubbles formed by breaking waves.
