I really like my job. Some days it is frustrating, but mostly it is rewarding. I like the daily challenges: be it explaining new concepts to students, grappling with research problems, designing a new module, planning a new project or writing a paper.
I work as part of a number of great teams.
My aspirations are to be a good team player and an inspirational leader.
