Some of my previous student’s comments:

“I just wanted to say that it’s been brilliant working with you this summer. You’ve made me rethink my whole view of science and scientists for the better and it’s been a pleasure to have been supervised by someone so enthusiastic and hard working. I know that if the lecturers I’ve had in England had been anything like you I never would have been put off of science in the first place.“

“Thank you! You are an inspiration, really! You have such amazing dedication towards what you do and your kindness is unmeasurable. Thanks for all your invaluable help during my thesis! I hope we meet again sometime :)“
