Confused teenager who was always going to study law until I discovered Jaques Cousteau! Sceince then took over my life and a Zoology degree followed by a move to a plant pathology PhD secured my future. Married to a scientist in a different field inevitably meant one of us had to give and he got the permanent job first so I moved into science communication. Working in one of the worlds hot spots in science, which most people don't appreciate, is a challenge but boy does social media help!
