      No I haven’t I’m afraid. No Nobel prize or patents to my name (as yet) . I suppose I’m more a working scientist than a researcher in that I use science that others have come up with and build on their bright ideas. I certainly take lots of samples and measurements and analyse data to assess the health of the environment and determine safe limits for factories to operate within so they don’t impact on the environment.
