Secret scientist: Mira Aroyo

Don't you love it when someone you had no idea was a scientist turns out to be a scientist? A lot of musicians seem to be scientists. I can think of one example anyway, and that example is Mira Aroyo of Ladytron. (That's Мира Аройо in her native Bulgarian.) Says Wikipedia:

"Besides her musical interests and abilities, Aroyo has a PhD in molecular genetics from Oxford University, where she was a postgraduate research geneticist in the University's Biochemistry department.[2] She co-authored an article on 'Species specificity in the activation of Xer recombination at dif by FtsK', published in Molecular Microbiology, 2003 [3]."
