      One of my teachers sparkled my interest to become a physicist when I was 12 years old. He introduced me to Einstein and his theories which really fascinated me at the time. I immediately fell in love with physics. When I went to university, I realised I was stronger and more interested in playing with instruments in the lab and doing experiments rather than pure maths. That’s how I decided to become an experimental physicist.
