From my Mum’s side, no scientists. Well, a couple of mathematicians, but they’ve been sucked into the world of banking.
From my Dad’s side, one uncle was an astrophysics professor in the States, and a really good one at that. One uncle is an engineer, and one is a chemical engineering professor in Berlin. His son (my cousin) has done a PhD in Chemistry too! The engineer’s son (another cousin) has married a girl that did her PhD in environmental chemistry.
The weird this is that no one pushed anyone else to get into science, so maybe it’s in our genes! Someone should do a PhD on that…
Randomly, both my parents are economists, and I never went anywhere near economics, so maybe my theory has fallen at the first hurdle about it being genetic!
