Study biomedical sciences in a dynamic scientific  environment

Flexible and compressed hours enabled me to work more efficiently, engaging more with my students and permitted me the quiet times for writing grants and papers. Such that after 10 years of being a Reader, I have now been promoted in 2020 to Professor.
