Many scientists are willing to support you. You just need to ask for it. So do it, you won't regret it.

What do you do?

I try to understand how life started on our planet by using simple chemical ingredients to build primitive cells.

Why did you choose this field?

The first time I met my PhD supervisor, he was so passionate about this field that he made me loving it!

What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?

Being awarded a Marie Skłodowska Curie Fellowship... I would have never expected to get it!

Why do you love working in STEM?

Working in STEM allows me to unleash my creativity. I love reading papers on different topics and sketching new ideas and projects.

Best advice for next generation?

There is no such things as having too many mentors, they'll all have a different point of view, so it'll be easier for you to build your own. Many scientists are willing to support you. You just need to ask for it. So do it, you won't regret it.
