I have a passion for practical chemistry and practical science, especially science which directly relates to teh world around us- why are cakes fluffy, why are biscuits crispy, how do you get really airy meringues. That passion has increased since having my own children and seeing their eyes light up when we conduct experiments in the kitchen. Linking this to understanding and respecting our environment is really important and for me as a mum and a scientist I feel I have an obligation and a responsibility to teach the next generation as much as we can and let them discover solutions to our problems.
