Ramen? Raman! We all love Ramen noodles, but this week is about Raman spectroscopy with PhD student Heather McEwan. It’s time to explore the ups and downs of starting a PhD and how to move from Physics to Chemistry. Heather has used her Physics background to move into an exciting multidisciplinary project which uses the light scattering technique Raman spectroscopy on human tissues and has fantastic applications in the field of healthcare. You can find Heather on her LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/in/heather-mcewan-74645b20a/
