Journey to Science

How did you become interested in science?

My grandfather was a pharmacologist, and he told me about his work. I have always dreamt that one day I would create my own drug and it would help people and make a difference in the world. Science is what I enjoyed most in school. While at university, I wanted to combine applied math, physics, biology and chemistry to benefit from that knowledge. I can’t imagine my life without science in it.
