What does International Women’s Day mean to you?
Is a chance to publicly acknowledge and recognise the contributions that women have made and continue to make. Although we should do this all year, sometimes setting aside one day means that we have time to reflect and celebrate together.
Tell us about a recent Research highlight / achievement.
I recently published a book with an inspiring female colleague. Not only is this something I am proud of as a tangible output, but the experience itself was extremely enjoyable and rewarding.
Tell us about a woman who inspires you.
My older sister. She is the vice president of a company in the US, works incredibly hard and is good at what she does. But she is also caring and thoughtful and is truly the “connector” in my family.
