Moazen to lead Human Science Frontier Program project to study osteoderms
"We do not know what drives the extraordinary diversity of osteoderms in lizards, how it is controlled, or how it originated."Read more
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.
