      I would call my lab….The Kraken Lab!

      ‘The Kraken’ was the nick name of my step mum and she helped me loads while doing my university undergrad degree. I think she would find it really funny to have a geology lab named after her. 🙂

      The kind of laboratory that we need for the particle physics experiments I have worked on would have to be deep underground to be shielded from particles and radiation coming from space. A good place would be the middle of a tunnel under a mountain so it is easy to get in and out.

      It would be somewhere in Europe (yes, I know that’s not very specific, but I just haven’t pinned down where I want to live permanently yet!), and it probably would very boringly just be called the Kaanders Lab or something – it’s quite common for people to just use their last name to name their lab.

      I think I would like to live in Hawaii, so my dream lab would be in Hawaii and named after whatever research we do there – I would feel strange calling it after myself although most people do.
