      Yes I do 🙂 It is not all work and routine since I do lots of stuff such as outreach activities, travelling around the UK to deliver science talks and also travel on research conferences to deliver technical papers on my latest research.

      Outside work, I love all type of music and also enjoy hiking and watching documentaries specially about great people who changed the world 🙂

      Yeah, definitely. My work is enjoyable and interesting and I feel very lucky to have that. Also my family and friends help to make my life fun! It’s important not to get too obsessed with work and spend plenty of time with your family and friends. 🙂

      Love it 🙂
      Great job, great city, great kids – of course it has challenges, but it all depends how you face them. I love cycling and used to race – you need a balance of work and play and that keeps you sane and happy.

      Most of the time – but there are always bad periods as well. Overall I am winning far more that I lose so I am genrally very happy. At the moment I am working from home and typing with my cat, Bandit, on my lap and she makes me feel very happy.
