      Hey Clifford, I first was interested in the solar system when we did about planets in junior school, I was really young. I think that hooked me for the rest of my life. I was always interested in particle physics even at A levels we didn’t do it and only did it in the 3rd and 4th year of uni – a long time to wait! For some unknown reason i was hooked on neutrinos as soon as I heard about them. I don’t know why they just fascinated me. I went to see the guy who would become my supervisor for a chat, a studentship came up for him and that was it – I was in!
