I’ve always had a natural understanding and fascination of mathematics. I find it particularly enjoyable when I’m able to apply mathematical skills to problem-solving questions. Physics is a subject that allows me to put these skills to use and solve problems relating to a real world context. I enjoy working as a team to solve problems – it’s fascinating to hear how other people approach and understand questions and concepts, and I find that this can broaden your own understanding.
