      Yes it is really fun, but there are tough days and challenging times too. It is nice to work on my own project, but I also work with other people sometimes too.
      I have worked with some really great people, and everyone has been so nice, that always makes it easier.

      Being scientist has been one of the best thing to me, I love my job and eagerly look forward to each day. I get to meet new people, do new experiments, train new students/staff, communicate science to both scientific and non-scientific audiences, and travel the world to attend conferences/workshops.
      So, if you want to contribute to society and give a better future to our next generations, here you are to begin your science experimentation. Good luck 🙂
