Pets:The tadpoles! Which are growing legs. It's all very exciting.
List the 3-5 biggest things going on in your life:
Hoping to hold a garden party, all being well, next Saturday. (You can come if you like, but do let us know.)
Anticipating small surgical procedure at end of next week.
Moving to a new office on 1 July.
Planning the summer holiday in Ireland.
None of which is terribly dramatic, but I don't mind!
Where and for what did you go to school for?I translate this as "what did you study in higher education" rather than "what is the point in attending high school". I did a BA in Natural Sciences and an M Phil in History and Philosophy of Science at Clare College, Cambridge; and a Ph D in History of Science at the Queen's University of Belfast.
Parents:My father died in 1990; my mother still lives in Dublin.
Who are some of your closest friends?:Well, let's see who comes to the aforementioned garden party next weekend...
