My connections to STFC science and technology:
They pay me to do my work!
Favourite thing to do in my job: Learning something new almost every day
I'm a planetary scientist who likes football, playing on my PlayStation, guitar and drums.
I grew up in the South Coast of England with my parents, sister and cat, called Kitty. Sadly Kitty died two years ago and now we have another cat called Cemot which is what you’d call a mess eater in Indonesian. His name is very appropriate because he loves his food and he has a smudge around his mouth that makes it look like he has food all over himself!
My favourite sport is football and I try to go to as many matches as possible with my sister to watch our hometown team play. I’m also part of MSSL’s football club and usually play as a forward. Something I can’t live without is my PlayStation 4. I could happily spend hours playing on it and is definitely my favourite thing to do when I need to relax. I like to play pop punk music on my guitar and drums but I’m not sure if my neighbours feel the same!
I investigate Jupiter's X-ray northern and southern lights!
