  • Quotes

    • Liz: I'd love to present more programmes that combine science with natural history. That's where I see myself working best as a broadcaster and hopefully I can have a long career doing what I love. I'd also like to do a PhD on tiger conservation, become a yoga teacher and buy my dream farmhouse in Provence.

    • Liz: I do believe that education plays an enormous role in the encouragement and preservation of the inherent curiosity children have about the world, which essentially is what being a scientist is all about.

    • Liz: Nature inspires me. It reminds me that, aside from our daily lives, spectacular things are going on every day on this planet; it puts everything in perspective and teaches me to try to be a little more humble.

    • Liz: I do think I'm a bit of a nerd, but more of a science nerd than a techie nerd. I'm a biologist and a biochemist, so I'm still a nerd – just a different type of a nerd.

    • Liz: I enjoy flying. It's a little bit of escapism, where you cannot get access to your phone or contact anyone. I tuck in under my blanket and watch movie after movie. But I still get butterflies and a smile on my face when I land.
