Hi there! I am a PhD researcher at The University of Manchester – Made in China and Delivered to UK 😉. I'm looking at how electrical power systems respond to extreme weather events such as flooding 🌊. Fun and socially helpful, isn't it? Furthermore, I have ~4 years of experience tutoring teenagers in programming 💻, and I really enjoy the vibe I get with my students = younger friends 👧👦.

My Typical Day: You know, I'm a student just like you 👩🎓! So my day is pretty much like yours. From sunrise 🌞 to sunset 🌛, I learn new things, complete "school work", etc. After school 🏫, (I would set my own time, sometimes as early as 3pm, sometimes later than 11pm, depending on how well the task was done), I would also have fun with my friends ⛹️♀️⛹️♂️. Relaxing and refreshing allowed me to tackle many difficult problems when I returned to my studies ✍.
What I'd do with the money
I will design a one-day Research Retreat, using the prize money to pay for the students' travel and meals, and invite them to my office in Manchester to work on their own and complete a project (which I will tailor to them, an interesting Energy-related project). They will play the role of PhD students and I will ask them questions as an intrigued teenage student.
