Favourite thing to do in my job: I admire science as it helps me developing understanding about world. It’s not bound to one field of science. I feel this is spread across the board. Let it be Chemistry, Materials, Physics, Biology, Engineering medicine or Astronomy. The more I understand the more satisfied I become. They all link up quite well and this is the idea which has made multidisciplinary science my passion and hence I chose this subject as my field of work.
I am lucky to have same “passion”, “hobby” and “work”.
Understanding of nature from simple things around me and building scientific concepts.
My Typical Day
Understanding theory then doing experiments and finally relax while off from work.
I read background theory, plan experiments and then do them. Following that I characterise my results. Make sure they are reliable and repeatable. Prepare reports and that about it!
What I'd do with the prize money
Help lab in a school
Help school in any part of world where secondary schools can’t afford to buy scientific equipment’s for children.
