,,

Don't worry that perhaps becoming a mother one day will disrupt your career.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I connect people to facilitate innovation in materials science.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?

Scientific father and great teachers.

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

As a youngster I never questioned that I couldn't do anything I put my mind to - my father taught me that.

WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?

Its important to me that we do the right thing - and for that you need knowledge and judgement. Science can teach you those skills.

BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?

Don't worry that perhaps becoming a mother one day will disrupt your career. There are so many opportunities available to support you doing both!
