Hi, my name is Michael. Whilst not strictly a scientist (I’m an engineer by study and by trade), I do love science and consider myself as ‘doing science’ on a daily basis.
So, where have I come from? Well, I have always been interested in science (and maths and technology). I studied maths and physics at college before doing a degree in mechanical engineering at university. During my degree, I became particularly interested in medical engineering. This led to me doing a PhD in orthopaedic biomechanics, looking at an alternative technique for revision total hip replacements.
I now work as a trainee clinical engineer for the National Health Service at a hospital in London. Perhaps my favourite aspect of the job is the flexibility I have to work on interesting projects and learn new things.
