You are not alone, we are millions.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I am studying the behaviour of complex fluids, such as personal care products

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?

I have always been fascinated by the understanding of the things we use every day. For instance, think about a shampoo. What are the ingredients? What is the physics behind? What is the interplay between the ingredients? Is every ingredient really necessary? I combined that with my other passion: cosmetics.

WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"

Younger me would have had more little faith in younger me

WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?

I was born in a family where there are no other girls. So, I feel like I have sisters now, and being supportive and helping other women make me feel a part of something revolutionary.

BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?

You are not alone, we are millions.
