      Great question! In terms of the research that I’ve done, I’ve not really found out any really ‘big’ things yet – but hopefully one day I will!

      I think the biggest thing that I’ve ever found out as a Scientist is how little we actually know about everything! The more we think we know about a certain subject, the more we realise that there’s lots left to find out. It can be quite scary at times, but also really exciting – I love coming into work every day and thinking about what new things I’m going to learn.
