      Hi 997

      I started University in 1987 when I went to Imperial College in London. I finished my undergraduate degree in 1990 and stayed there to do a PhD. I was there until the end of 1993 after which I started working as a post-doctoral researcher at the Swiss Tropical Research Institute in Basel (affiliated to Basel University). I then came back to the UK and worked at Cambridge University before moving to Durham University.

      So really I have never left University since I started my first degree.
