Sarah Tesh and Susan Curtis report from Los Angeles, California, as the APS March Meeting 2018 kicks off
I am features editor for Physics World, meaning I’m in charge of the magazine’s long feature articles. I select interesting and unusual topics, find academics or journalists to write them, and then edit and polish the articles until they are at their best possible standard. I also write the occasional blog about exciting science trips.
Before starting at Physics World as a reporter in 2017, I studied physics at the University of Bristol and then, being slightly too attached to the city, stayed on to do a PhD in materials science. While I particularly enjoy reading and writing about applied physics, I have a soft spot for particle physics and cosmology.
Outside of science, I’m often found drawing, reading fantasy books or watching cookery competitions on TV (even though I’m absolutely rubbish at cooking). I also have unhealthy obsessions with Pinterest, cats and Harry Potter, and can eat massive amounts of chocolate in one sitting.
