What do you do?
create and communicate knowledge to enhance intellectual life regionally and globally in the field of pharmaceutical engineering
Why did you choose this field?
Inspiration from my mother guide me through this career to support people. I feel always excited to find fresh yet simple solutions to existing challenges in this field. Additionally, translational nature of the research and how it is reflected and transmitted to future scientists (students) is always rewarding experience in the lifetime.
What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?
Transdermal application of the medicines through non-invasive occlusive dressings. This would make injectables a second option for many cases.
Why do you love working in STEM?
Passion to learn more. There is always something new that you can integrate to your strategy and get improved. Dangling between the border of old roots of the science and new technological methods and putting your feet in the right place through finding relevancy, standing firm and continue on a certain idea full with the uncertainty risk is and adrenaline dose that I cannot quit!
Best advice for next generation?
Be yourself and enjoy your work. From the failure point start stronger. Never stop! Everyday you are alive is a new opportunity for you, never miss it!
