Yes science was my favourite subject. I liked all aspect of sciences but physics and chemistry were my favourites. In fact I found it hard to pick between chemistry and the more “physics” based chemical engineering when going to Uni so I picked a course that had a mixture of the two! I still do work which is a mixture of the two – so I guess I never did decide.
Yes – I enjoyed Chemistry the most but I was also good at Maths. But don’t neglect other subjects like English … part of being a good scientist is being able to communicate a good story about your research. We spend a lot of time writing about our research outcomes in research papers which are published for other scientists to read.
