Matchstick Scientist: Helen Czerski’s Mancunian Heritage

Helen Czerski is a physicist, oceanographer and broadcaster with a passion for revealing the wonder in our everyday lives. Her fascination with the world of fast-moving, small-scale phenomena led her first to undertake a PhD in Experimental Explosive Physics at Cambridge University and has since led her to the study of ocean bubble formation. Her first book A Storm in a Teacup is a brilliantly entertaining introduction to physics in general that manages to make this hugley complex topic accessible to all.
