My favourite thing in science is particle physics – studying the tiny particles and forces that make up our Universe. I also love astronomy, trying to understand how the solar system formed, how stars evolve, the Big Bang. I find it so fascinating! What’s your favourite thing in science?
My favourite thing is sitting down at the computer to see — for the very first time — the protein structure revealed by our experiments (which may take months or years to complete). That’s a real high for me (and for the student or research assistant who did most of the leg-work).
It is a very special moment of discovery – we get to gaze on something that no-one in the world has ever seen before.
