I science. It’s my job.
That was me as an analytical chemist about 2010-ish. Look at me, so young, and almost full of hope. Crippling nihilism was barely on the radar.
What type of scientist am I? I analyse things. I’ve got a chemistry degree and a physics PhD, but bottom line: I look at stuff, in stuff, on stuff, and work out what all the stuff is. If you’ve got some stuff and you don’t know what it is, then maybe you should give me a call.
I’ve worked on nano-particles, cancer drugs, solar cells, dental implants, new anti-biotics, transistors, corrosion inhibitors, anti-psychotics, semi-conductors, gas sensors, asthma drugs, particle accelerators and rat piss.
