      That’s a great question! On the research front, to be honest if by the end of my career I’ve made an original, interesting contribution to our understanding of the universe I think I’ll be happy! I would love to see a new particle discovered and be able to say “I had a part in that”, but even if they never do that in my lifetime, knowing I’ve played a part in a little step forward will be enough for me.

      I’d also love to be able to say that I’ve helped to inspire people, and that I’ve done my bit to give everyone an equal opportunity to pursue science. This is why I’m participating in events like this!
