      I’m wrecked tired, I had a long day at work but now I’m home, full of potatoes with my feet up. Thanks for asking.
      I have two sisters (a scientist and a business sort) and a brother (an engineer).
      My favourite hobby varies, but it’s usually one of baking, sewing or crocheting.
      My typical day varies, with different amounts of lab work and writing to be done.
      I do like working in a lab, I love analysing data a little bit more though, so I’d be happy to work in a room off a lab telling scientists what their results mean.
      I haven’t visited any secondary schools (though I really should do that with SmartFutures). I’ll be quite busy for the next few months with my work, but maybe I’ll get to visit next September.
