      My job is not an easy one, I have to do a lot of different tasks: do science, train students, write grants, teach in lectures (and write the lectures), mark exams, write scientific papers and reports,as well as doing a lot of paperwork. It is challenging and can be frustrating and hard work, but it is great fun most of the times!

      I really like cell biology, especially studying cancer cell biology. It is very interesting to understand how cancer cells “go bad”: What makes them do this? How can we target it to kill them off?
