My Typical Day
Get to work, email, teach, chat to students, teach, email, make new materials to teach with, home, email, make new materials to teach with
What's the best thing you've done in your career?
I think the teaching bit, I love tinkering on my own, but it is great to inspire the next generation
What or who inspired you to follow your career?
Not a who, a what, I loved taking things apart to see how they worked, then see if I could put them back together in different ways, my parents were very understanding when I inevitably had a ‘spare’ screw
What did you want to be after you left school?
I always wanted to be a scientist, at school I wanted to do astrophysics though
If you weren't doing this job, what would you choose instead?
I can’t imagine not doing science and engineering, its fundamental to who I am
