      It was my Dad really. He was a policeman, not a scientist but he absolutely loved his job because he got to spend his days riding the streets of London on his horse. What he inspired in me was the desire to do something that I enjoy. You spend a lot of your adult life at work and Dad showed me how you can still put that time towards doing something you love For him it was helping people on his horse, for me it is fiddling around in a lab!
