I started my academic life as a medical student in Edinburgh over 20 years ago and have made my way back here by a rather circuitous route. Realising life as a doctor was not for me, I left my medical studies in the fourth year with honours in Medical Microbiology and went on to qualify as a high school teacher, teaching Biology and Science for 4 years.
