      My favourite part of being a scientist is finding out something that no one else previously knew. It is then, of course, important to tell the rest of the world about that finding through scientific papers and conference talks. And the conference talks gives you a great opportunity to do some traveling! For example, this summer I’m off to San Diego and Utah for two conferences, where I am giving two talks.
