I simply love asking questions and doing science offers many answers.
My chemistry teacher at school was brilliant and allowed us to do many experiments and discussions (example: Why is the sky blue? What is the Chemistry in preparing Vodka? What makes a substance highly toxic? What is color?) during class. I remember many great hours spent in Chemistry class. I guess that was when it started.
I really enjoyed chemistry lessons, as well as biology at school, and had great teachers for both. So I was motivated to continue chemistry at University, and this has led me to studying battery chemistry. As a scientist you have the opportunity to try to solve some of the major technological questions of our time – such as how to get a battery to power a car for 500 miles.
I really enjoyed my science lessons at school, and then began to realise that I also enjoyed the scientific process of making hypotheses and testing them (which is a bit different to learning about science). It is a privilege, and and very interesting, to be able ask (and sometimes answer) questions about the world around you as a key part of your job.
