Solar Physics Postgraduate Researcher

About Me

My name is Liam Edwards and I am a postgraduate researcher at the Solar System Physics research group at Aberystwyth University. My research is focused mainly on the atmosphere of our Sun - the corona. I am a fluent Welsh speaker and I am passionate about the Welsh language and my PhD is funded by a Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol postgraduate research scholarship. My undergraduate degree was also done at Aberystwyth University and, after entering on the Foundation Year scheme in 2014, I graduated in the summer of 2019 with a first-class integrated Master's degree in Astrophysics.

I am deeply passionate about science communication and outreach and I have been involved in several outreach projects, written articles, and have done several radio interviews for BBC Radio Cymru. My goal is to become a physics lecturer and so teaching is something I thoroughly enjoy doing. I have been a postgraduate demonstrator for the PH15720 Laboratory Techniques for Experimental Physics, PH05720 Introduction to Laboratory Physics, and PH10020 Dynamics, Waves and Heat modules during my PhD.
