The hot weather could not melt the enthusiasm of our placement and internship students. In the week July 16-25 Samuel Richardson from UTC Portsmouth and Dominic Hanley from Oaklands catholic school have worked with ICG PhD student Pierandrea Guarnieri under the supervision of Profs. Maraston and Thomas, on determining the robustness of redshift determinations, in particular studying the factors determining their quality.
From July 3 to 25, Portsmouth Physics student Sophie-Louise Courtney has started to learn how to derive the physical parameters of stellar spectra working with Dr. Sofia Meneses-Goytia under the supervision of Prof. Maraston. Sophie has even written a report and will be ready to start her Master in September.
It was a pleasure to host these hard working students and we wish them all the best for their future!
