One of the postdocs of our group, Dr Anna Lombardi, has just won the second prize at the East Anglia heat of the Institute of Physics' "3 Minute Wonder Competition". The event, aimed at 16 to 18 year olds, is a chance to describe your research with a strict 3 minute time limit. Anna ended up winning the second prize with her talk "Watching molecules dancing in real time", finishing in 3 minutes and 6 seconds.

She will go on to compete in the national final, held at the Royal Institute in London.
