Secretary - SFSP York
Heidi Riley serves as Secretary for the York chapter of SFSP, and is a first year Theoretical Physics student here at the University of York. Having a particular interest in nanotechnology, she feels particularly drawn to the idea that by applying innovative design and intelligent thinking, we can transform the seemingly mundane into tools and machines that can shape our future. To support this, she is also actively involved in Physics Soc at the University. Outside of her studies, Heidi is a keen musician, and is part of a variety of musical activities on campus.
