Nurhana Tajuddin, Durham



Good to hear from you. Hmm, about my skills.

I am quite proficient with Fortran, but no other programming languages. In addition to the courses taught as part of my university course, I also spent six weeks over the summer of almost solid programming and simulating as a part of my summer student placement in the computational cosmology research group.

I am doing a theoretical physics course, so I haven't done a practical for about a year. However, I did do another student placement last summer at my university which was largely experimental work. During this eight week period, I learnt and used the basic functions of equipments such as an electron microscope and an impedence spectroscope.

Both placements involved a lot of analysis work, which I rather enjoyed. So I would prefer analysis, simulation work for the project, but would also love some experience with detector hardware. As for the detector knowledge, I'm afraid it's very basic, but I am keen to learn.

I guess that's about it. If I haven't answered all your questions, just let me know.

Looking forward to meeting you and doing the project. Nurhana.
