Helen Czerski (born 1 November 1978) is a physicist and oceanographer based at the Institute for Sound and Vibration Research at the University of Southampton.[3]

Education[edit]

Czerski was brought up in Altrincham, near Manchester and educated at Altrincham Grammar School for Girls.[4] She graduated from Churchill College, Cambridge with degrees Master of Arts and Master of Science in Natural Sciences (Physics) and a PhD[5] in experimental explosives physics, particularly Research Department Explosive (RDX).[6]

Broadcasting[edit]

In March 2012 she co-presented with Kate Humble a three part series, Orbit: Earth's Extraordinary Journey, on BBC Two.[7] She has also appeared on Operation Iceberg (BBC Two), Museum of Curiosity (BBC Radio 4), The Transit of Venus (Horizon), Stargazing Challenges (BBC Two), Rhode Island television - USA, Scrapheap Challenge, Dara Ó Briain's Science Club and The Secret Life of the Sun. She presented her own programme POP! The Science of Bubbles on BBC Four in April 2013.[8]

Research[edit]

Czerski's research[9] focusses on ocean bubbles, bubble acoustics, air-sea gas transfer and ocean bubble optics.[3][10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21]
