What do you like most about your job?

In my role, a primary responsibility involves interacting with our business partners and researchers from different countries to support them with their queries. The feeling of being helpful and making someone’s day is incomparable. My job not only gives me the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with others but also provides the scope to learn about different areas ranging from strategic decision making, business development, and current trends in the market etc. Additionally, the variability of the work I do on daily basis makes every day interesting.

What fascinates you about the life sciences?

The enormous mystery of life and the endeavor of science to uncover this mystery is really fascinating for me. Even though science has made remarkable progress in our understanding about life, there are still many open questions. It seems like the more science uncovers about life, the greater the mysteries become.

Best vacation you’ve been on?

My trip to the North West coast of Sardinia, Italy. We drove through the coastal area in that region and explored many wonderful places. The breathtaking view, mesmerizing beaches with turquoise sea water, the tranquility as well as delicious local seafood and pizza, altogether made the vacation really memorable and my best vacation so far!

Do you have a favorite quote?

Actually, I have many! I would like to mention two of them:

-‘A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty’ – Winston Churchill

-‘Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning’ – Albert Einstein

What was the most satisfying moment of your PhD?

When I saw my PhD thesis in printed form!

What advice would you give to prospective PhD students?

I wouldn’t dare to advise, but I can share my experience. Doing a PhD is a notorious adventure, full of surprises – both good and bad. You need patience until the end. You will learn about science but you will also gain many other soft skills, making you more competent for your next adventure!
