      The hardest part of my job can sometimes be fitting everything in! Sometimes I have a problem that takes much longer to solve than I think, and it can be hard letting people down when I said I would get things done faster. The best part of my job is working really hard on a problem and then finally getting the right answer!

      Yes. At times my job can be very challenging, but also greatly rewarding. The best thing is talking about my achievements with others.

      Sometimes it can be hard yes! Working as a researcher it means you are trying to find out something brand new. This means nobody has ever done it before so it can be a hard process! Sometimes there can be long hours, or your experiments don’t work and you don’t really know why!

      Overall though, I really love being a scientist. I love challenging my brain and finding out new things all the time, even though this can be tricky sometimes!
