For half the week Steve works at the Kitchen Table. At the KT Steve plans, cooks, entertains, talks (and not just in English!), lives, and somehow manages to find the time to do science. The KT is an ideal platform for Steve’s four dimensional* approach to science:
Dimension 1: Science – the new experiments, concepts and discoveries that science provides.
Dimension 2: Scientists – science need good scientists, we need the latter even more than the former.
Dimension 3: Engagement – how science communicates with the world outside the lab.
Dimension 4: Community – modern science is a global, multi-cultural, multi-skill activity: getting community and working culture right is the hardest part of lab work.
