Route to training or education
My A levels were in History, Maths and Physics and I have a Masters degree in Geology with Planetary Science. I am currently working towards my PhD.
I'm a PhD student at the University of Manchester. I study the chemistry of meteorites to help us understand how our Solar System formed and evolved.
Was the route to your training or education typical, unusual or a bit of both?
Day in life
My working life is a mix of reading scientific papers, planning experiments, preparing meteorite samples, running my experiments in the laboratory, working through the data I collect, writing up my work for publication or preparing to present it at meetings and conferences. To see the sort of things my lab group are interested in take a look at our blog: http://earthandsolarsystem.wordpress.com/

Life outside work
My favourite things to do outside work are cooking, shopping, going to music and comedy shows and travelling to different cities.
What type of scientist are you
Don't be afraid of admitting that you don't know everything.
