      I enjoy it a lot! It’s hard work, and can be stressful, but it’s so exciting being at the forefront of science when so much is changing all the time.

      I honestly absolutely love it. There is always so much to do and every task is different, so it keeps me on my toes! I also like working with lots of people.

      Love it, wouldn’t change most things, It can be stressful at time finding a balance between research, admin and teaching responsibilities as an academic, but i love developing new knowledge in students, helping them to develop their own skills and ideas.

      Research wise, we are very luck to be able to work on issues and ideas that interest us, I am doing some multinational project work with collaborators in around 12 different countries, and was lucky enough to travel to a few of them earlier this year.
