About Dr Helen Czerski

Helen graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2001 with a BA and MSci in Natural Sciences (Physics), and again in 2006 with a PhD in experimental explosives physics. During this time she also worked at the University of Toronto in Canada and Los Alamos National Laboratory in the USA. A continuing fascination with the world of small-scale phenomena that happen too fast for humans to perceive led her from explosives to the study of ocean bubble formation.

After three and a half years spent working in the USA (at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and the Graduate School of Oceanography at URI), she returned to the UK in 2010 as a research fellow at the ISVR. Her interests are the optics and acoustics of bubbles, the structure of the bubble plumes in breaking waves, and the influence of bubbles on air-sea gas transfer. She’s also passionate about public engagement on scientific topics, and has extensive experience of public lectures and demonstrations, as well as science media work.
