STEM allows you to work with various and diverse teams.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
Developing multifunctional hybrid nanocomposite systems for biomedical, environmental, and catalytic applications within an emphasis given to mitigation of their toxicological effects observed at relevant exposures.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?
After graduating from chemistry, I realized I can use the acquired knowledge to develop advanced nanotechnological solutions.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"
I would like to know and use the XPS technique earlier. I could solve many problems in the surface chemistry of materials.
WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?
I love the unexpected thrilling results that come as a reward of in-depth studies.
BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?
It allows you to work with various and diverse teams, mostly interdisciplinary, enabling self-development at the highest possible level.
