I have worked in Physics and Astronomy at Southampton for the past 15 years and it is an exciting place to be. We are understanding new things every day and seeing students develop into professional physicists.
There is a great sense of community in Physics and Astronomy. I work with a growing outreach team of undergraduates, postgraduates and academics, on large events such as BBC Stargazing Live. I get really excited when I see people of various ages and at different stages of their careers working together to inspire the next generation of physicists and astronomers.
