Well the ones on here especially in the live chats have to be off the top of my head!! The ones in this section get a little more google time!!
I do alot of research on the internet to find answers to my problems. I find what other people have done and see how that applies to what I am trying to do. I then test any idea (hypothesis) I have in the lab and see how that matches up. I then look again at what other people have done to see if I can gain anymore insights. It kind of goes round and round like that!
So I would say about 1/4 of my time is spent trying to find answers then some time planning stuff and the rest of the time testing my ideas in the lab!
I hope that helps.
