When I'm not doing research I like to make music. A lot of it is nerdy rap, filled with lots of math and science puns.
Here is a video I made for an event at the Cambridge Science Festival in 2014. The prompt was to make science look "cool." What you see below was an attempt to play with that prompt by taking pop music/rap stereotypes and applying them to science. As with the stereotypes that they are meant to satirize, the song and video can be suggestive at times, so please be warned.
