      Any time you walk on a pavement, or drive on a road, or get a train, or flush a toilet or climb a staircase, or look out a window, or go down an escalator, or use an airport, or stand in your house, or on a bridge over a river, you are using buildings and infrastructure designed by people doing jobs like mine. There are many places in the world where none of this is available, so make sure you appreciate the work that went into making your lifestyle possible 🙂

      currently I’m working on skin diseases and the hope is that my research will be a huge step towards regenerative medicine!

      If I design awesome folding bikes, more people will buy and ride folding bikes.
      More cycling = less pollution from car/bus/tube/train journeys
      Less pollution = better air quality and better for environment
      More cycling = better health & fitness for lots of people!
