Where do you work now?
I’ve been travelling around a bit. For a while I worked at ESTEC, in Holland, and then in Tenerife. After spending two years in the Sun (and on the beaches!) I have now moved back to Armagh, still looking for waves and oscillations in the solar atmosphere.
What hobbies have you got?
Not very many, I'm a bit lazy! I enjoy swimming, studying languages and travelling. If I'm feeling energetic, I also like to play basketball and indoor football if I can find enough people willing to put up with my lack of skill.
Where have you travelled?
So far I have been lucky enough to travel to Washington D.C. and Boston in the USA.
In addition, I have travelled to Florence in Italy, to Berlin and Potsdam in Germany. For the conference dinner in Potsdam, we were taken on a boat trip on the river Spree. This is the river on which Berlin is built. When the boat reached Berlin the mayor there had organised a massive firework display for the scientists at the conference. It was really amazing. Who said conference dinners were boring?
