Medical student in the United Kingdom, having previously studied Biology at A-Level. I spend a good deal of my time volunteering with St John Ambulance, which I find fantastically rewarding and when I'm not writing essays I'm handling flags here on Bio.SE.

@bobtheowl2 I did try and find a radiation badge style dosimeter for you but it seems the only ones they have at present are for 24/7 exposure studies and tend to be quantitative rather than a qualitative red light approach
