He now puts skills learned working in metrology (the study of measurements) to good use in the offices of NPL. James is also on the IOP's Diversity committee. He's been working on a report from last year's LGBT+ physical sciences climate survey. In this episode, we talk about the importance of redefining the kilogram, queer STEM heroes, and James teases some of the...

Besides that, she's a twitch streamer, aspiring novelist, and amateur model! A note from Ashley: I made a slight mistake in described the timescales that different...
