Dr Mark Richards is a very inspirational scientist. With a PhD in Atmospheric Physics, he is pioneering work in wireless air pollution monitors. He is also heavily involved with outreach work with young people at his place of work – Imperial College London (one of the best science universities in the world) and also finds time to dj.
Black scientists are under represented in society, especially contemporary ones and I thought Dr Richards work should be celebrated. You can find out more about him at http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/newsandeventspggrp/imperialcollege/newssummary/news_4-9-2015-11-14-26.
