I left my job in industry to return to the University of Aberdeen in 2010 to start a PhD investigating a novel signalling system present in mechanosensitive terminals (specialised parts of the body that can sense when they are stretched, such as those within muscle).
I am in the final throes of a PhD in neuroscience at Oxford. My experiments look at the wiring and firing of the auditory cortex, particularly the inputs from other senses into the hearing system. I've also studied molecular biology, science history and linguistics. I have a very, very sweet tooth.
