When did you join the RGS? 2017

What’s the best thing about the RGS?  The students and their ability to both challenge and surprise me with their intelligence and ability to injure themselves in the most random of ways (my colleagues are great too)

What’s your life philosophy/motto in life? in the words of Atticus finch in my favourite book: “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… until you climb in his skin and walk around in it.”

If you could choose one superhuman ability what would it be? For my job, x-ray vision would be great! In general, teleportation so I could go anywhere, anytime with no delay.

What would your theme song be? Smile by Nat king Cole.

Do you have any phobias? I dislike velvet, it’s texture puts my teeth on edge!

What’s the strangest thing in your fridge at the moment?  Moths – my husband is a keen entomologist and conservationist so breeds moths to maintain certain species in the local area.

What would your autobiography be entitled? ‘Life with my brother – the best gift ever’

What is your favourite ice-cream flavour? I had the most amazing Nutella ice cream in Barcelona.

Which actor/actress would you get to play you in a film of your life? Emma Thompson!

What food will you absolutely not, under any circumstances, eat? Anything that’s still moving!
