Why did you choose science as a career?
My background is actually in business, but I really enjoy being in the scientific and biotech field. I am always fascinated by all the enthusiasm, endurance and great minds in science. I love the atmosphere when my colleagues come accross some new solutions and discoveries.
Why are you passionate about what you're working on?
The skin microbiome is an extremely exciting area that I think it will give us so many answers for our skin problems one day. I like the idea of finding the real solutions and not just covering what is on the surface. Imagine you have not ever to think about makeup beacuse your skin is just perfect.
What is one piece of advice you’d give to young women in the life science sector?
Keep your mind and your eyes open and don’t get intimidated by all the men around :) I don’t think the life science is so much different from other fields. As long as you enjoy what you doing you will be fine.
