I always remember being fascinated by how things work. My dad was a big influence in getting me to investigate and ask good questions, and my mum tended to bear the brunt of those questions! Both my parents were Christians and so I went to church as a teenager, but to be honest I didn't understand a lot of my own beliefs so when I went to the University of Sheffield to study pharmacology I quickly abandoned anything to do with Christianity. I later did my PhD at the University of Manchester and then moved to Cambridge to work in drug discovery for a Belgian pharmaceutical company. While in Cambridge I ended up wandering into a church and at the age of 27 I properly thought about what I believed for the first time. I've been a Christian and a drug discovery scientist for 9 years now and over that time I've had the pleasure of discovering some of the wonderful complexity of creation through a microscope lens and seen the truth of the Christian gospel play out in my own life and the world around me. I'm currently working on new drugs to treat severe diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, fibrosis and epilepsy. I'm married to Victoria and have a daughter, Eva.
