Q: What are your hobbies or passions outside of work?
A: Research is an all-consuming profession, and since starting my laboratory a few years ago I find it hard to find time to do too many ‘fun’ things. That said, quality time spent with close friends and family keeps me sane. I enjoy cooking and eating good food and have discovered gardening can be very therapeutic. Should I ever find more time, I’d like to carry on learning Italian, go back to playing the piano and read voraciously on many subjects of interest including philosophy, quantum mechanics and neuroscience.
