Clare Scullion prepares TARANIS for an experiment

An A-SAIL research student was one of the Queen's team attending the 'Voice of the Future 2015' event, hosted by the Science and Technology Committee in Westminster on 4 March.

Clare Scullion, winner of the First Trust Bank Queen's University Student of the Year Award in July 2014, was one of a group of young scientists, engineers and students from across the UK who had the chance to quiz the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee on matters relating to science and politics in the UK.

Among those taking part was Sir Mark Walport, the Government Chief Scientific Advisor, who appeared along with a prestigious panel of experts, and took questions from the researchers.

Clare Scullion is currently working on improving techniques for accelerating ions with lasers, using the TARANIS laser at the Centre for Plasma Physics at Queen's.
