      Hi! My favourite thing about my job is that it lets me be curious, and to approach problems in a way that is uniquely ‘me’, in the way I best think makes sense. In school you’re often told ‘use this formula’ or ‘here is what to do to solve this problem’ – as a scientist, there’s often no set way to do things and, even when there is, it’s up to you to figure out what it is, learn about it, and do it right. I think being a scientist is like being a detective, or a professional puzzle solver – you have to find all your evidence, all your pieces, put it in the right order to work out what’s happening, and then make your case to other people that you’re right!

      I think best of the things is that I am bringing my positive contribution and skills to the domain, and to the community, trying to make a positive impact.
