I am a scientist in Glasgow, trying to figure out how parasites duplicate their weird genomes.

I don't know how I got into science, but I blame all the sci-fi hype on cartoon, series and cinema from the 80's and 90's! Science is endless - there's always something we don't know, and it's discovery is always thrilling. To me, there's nothing like the rush of finding something for the first time - it has been there forever, but no-one knew; now we know! It makes us understand our surroundings, evolve, and become a better society.
