Aaron Barker, Part III
I arrived at Cambridge University just over three years ago intending to study physics as part of the Natural Sciences Tripos, but the Earth Sciences lectures quickly captured my imagination, covering exciting fields such as earthquakes, ice ages, fossils and meteorites.
Field trips including to Arran and Greece have brought the concepts introduced in lectures to life with a real-world context.
In the summer before my third year, I thoroughly enjoyed my mapping which consisted of spending a month wherever in the world I chose piecing together its geological history. After the work, I was free to travel round Canada with some great friends.
