What’s an ‘ORT’ subject or practice that you think deserves more attention?
Misconduct (e.g., data fabrication) is more widespread than scientists like to accept, and the situation will not improve unless we start openly discussing it, and we give protection/incentives for whistleblowers to come forward if they have robust evidence behind their allegations.    

What’s the last book that affected the way you currently think about things?
“The diving bell and the butterfly” is a book “written” by a man who suffered locked-in syndrome after a stroke; he relayed his story, letter by letter, by blinking an eyelid to a scribe. This resonated with me, as I spent several months in a similar situation after being struck down by Guillain-Barre syndrome in 2019.
