Transcript:

Did you have any expectations of an academic career when you embarked on a PhD? 

I think I hoped rather than expected. People were quite good - I mean professors and people in the department - were quite good at saying not that many people will get an academic career, or move into an academic career, as a proportion of people that start a PhD, so there was an acknowledgement then that it wasn't going to be easy but I think I was certainly hopeful for quite a long time that that's the career route I was going down.
