Science outreach has always been one of my primary interests. I like talking about current research with the general public in a language that they will understand and I like knowing their thoughts and opinions on science and scientists. All of yesterday and the day before, I was a demonstrator at an Edinburgh International Science Festival event talking to people of all ages about my research and general science at the University.

It’s 1:01 PM here. And it’s pouring outside. It’s the Monday after Easter. I had to be at work but I decided to skip it today. I am lucky to have this flexibility to work when I want to as long as the work gets done! (Before you get all dreamy eyed to live my life instead of yours, let me tell you I had a full day at work yesterday. On Easter Sunday. Yes. An exhausting day at work!!! That’s sort of the price I pay…) Continue reading “Just type away”

I sit at a cafeteria…my favourite in Edinburgh, for it is very special. It’s called Project Coffee and it is on Bruntsfield Place, right around the corner from where I live. In just another day I will have to rephrase this statement and say “…around the corner from where I used to live.” Continue reading “The Big Move…”
Allegra – it is a female name of Italian origin meaning joyful, happy, lively. Well that’s what the internet told me. But to me Allegra is special… Continue reading “Allegra”
While everyone (well, everyone interested in tennis) has their eyes glued to the television sets watching the spectacular tennis tournament that is The Championships Wimbledon, I get the inspiration for my next article. I am listening to McEnroe’s commentary on the Roger Federer-Grigor Dimitrov match and researching on the scoring system. Most people would wonder why tennis has a scoring system where you go 0-15-30-40-Game instead of perhaps 0-15-30-45-Game. The latter surely sounds more sensible. Continue reading “Love-15-30-40-Game!”
