      I don’t find the science I do day to day all that stressful really at any point, except maybe running really heavy software on shared servers – I have crashed a couple of servers over the years from missing something in my code and it’s always pretty embarrassing and risks other people losing work. But generally I find stuff that’s a bit more external like deadlines and presenting my work to people a lot more stressful than the actual science.

      I was least good at biology, because it involved lots of essays at school which I didn’t like doing.
      As with Zoe, it’s more the surrounding pressures and deadlines that add stress than the science itself
