'From football to Physics' a way of life for Rhodes Scholar and Wadham College physics alumnus Joe Romig.

Wadham College has produced a lovely article about Joe Romig, who studied Physics here in 1963.

We had the pleasure to see Joe back in the Clarendon Lab last year during the Rhodes House 110th Anniversary celebrations, and also during Alumni Weekend; as well as earlier this year...even though he now lives in the USA.

You can read more about his journey here, on Wadham's website.
