Physics concepts and articles through dance. The motivation is to make physics concepts less daunting and to encourage students (and especially young women) to pursue science by showing them there is no ‘standard’ personality or path for doing so. Come follow me on Instagram @PhysicsonPointe and feel free to share ideas and articles with me.
Humbled and honoured to be one of the featured women in Rebel Girls Vol 2. 💪 It’s crazy to be next to idols Frida, JK Rowling, Angela Merkel, Oprah, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Beyonce😍 !
"Millions dream of being an astronaut, but how many of us have what it takes?
Astronaut and former Commander of the International Space Station, Chris Hadfield, former NASA medical researcher Dr Kevin Fong, and psychologist Dr Iya Whiteley, have chosen 12 exceptional applicants from thousands. From these 12, just one candidate will ultimately be selected as the winner. The person who impresses the most will receive the ultimate reference: Chris’s backing for their application when the space agencies next take on recruits.
The candidates range from doctors of science to a military pilot, a surgeon, a dentist who has summited Mt Everest and a professional ballerina studying for a PhD in Physics. They all have one thing in common: their desire to find out if they are made of the ‘right stuff’ to be an astronaut."

Zero Point is an engrossing sensory performance inspired equally by the sacred and scientific, Zero Point fuses digital imagery produced by motion-sensing technology with meditative choreography.
Hypnotic light and video projections fill the space onstage to form virtual architecture, connecting the seamless fluidity and precise grace of an ensemble of Japanese dancers. Enhanced by the frequencies of an ambient soundscape, the experience is illusory and immersive. Canadian composer Tim Hecker, a pioneer of experimental electronic music, provides an additional energy to power the piece.
Multi-disciplinary artist Darren Johnston and Ballerina/ Physicist Merritt Moore delve into sacred and scientific concepts of zero. With a movement vocabulary drawing influences from Butoh, Qigong and neo-classical ballet, they distill these ideas into this innovative new show. http://www.array.org.uk/

ZePVRO will create a sensory journey combining virtual reality, motion sensing technology, powerful digital imagery, music and dance to illuminate the mysteries of quantum physics. This virtual reality video will be a key addition to the live production “Zero Point” premiering at the Barbican in May 2017. It will pioneer the use of aesthetic virtual reality technology to inspire excitement for both art and science through an immersive experience.

Invited to speak on the Greenlight for Girls physics panel to inspire the next generation of young minds to follow studies in STEM, with a focus on physics. Greenlight for Girls (g4g) Day was in partnership with Oxford University Department of Physics and Oxford Women in Physics Society for 100 girls aged 11-14.
Performing for quantum physics-themed science cabaret organized by Science Oxford 7 Dec. Science Oxford is the public-facing part of The Oxford Trust – an independent charitable trust, which has the mission is to encourage and facilitate the study, application and communication of science, technology, engineering and mathematics through enterprise, education and engagement.
CUWiP UK is aimed at helping undergraduate physicists who identify as women to continue in physics by providing them with the opportunity to participate in a conference focused on their development as scientists and showcasing options for their educational and professional futures.
I was a member of the organising committee and a member of the panel of experts to answer questions on graduate study and career opportunities outside academia that are open to students with a physics degree.
Offering support to female physicists through one-to-one mentoring. I've been an ongoing mentor to support the education and career development of women in physics by providing one-to-one mentoring to target individual concerns and goals. I've also been invited as a guest speaker for the Women in Physics trimester session and a volunteer for The Isaac Physics Girls Day.
