      Well for me, my research being quite theoretical, one of the nicest things is that I can sit down anywhere with a pen and paper , and do work – lots of maths and horrible equations. Sometimes I need a computer but nothing I can’t do on a laptop. So I guess one of the best things is the freedom to run around anywhere and take my work with me.

      Another great thing is that gravity is one of the most mysterious (and intriguing) forces, and there is so much we still need to understand about it. It also allows some of the craziest things to happen, like black holes to form or wormholes! This all has to do with it’s very special relationship with time, which is also very mysterious 😮 😮
