      I think everyone has those days. Especially the days when experiments don’t go to plan but the good days definitely outweigh those.

      Usually it only happens when my equipment throws a temper tantrum or I realise how much data I have to sort through…. so every few days really! But the good days are very good, so it is worth it!

      Not really. I am very curious by nature and science gives a very good platform to keep me occupied.

      Plus when you are in science you can understand nature and enjoy its complexity and beauty so much more.

      Everyone has those days but I really wouldn’t want to do anything else!
