And before this? It is a bit of long story but it involves a couple of children and several countries - B.Sc.(hons) & a M.Sc.(with distinction) from the University of Otago in New Zealand, Ph.D. from Utrecht University in the Netherlands, a Postdoc. at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, France.
