“Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible.” (Feynman)
Please describe your job in only one sentence and tell us what the most important goal of this work is.
Simulating ice in protoplanetary disks to understand early stages of planetary formation
How did you get into this research/work field?
I worked in ESTEC as an intern, and there I developed a deep interest in planetary system and on instrumentation for observing them
What would be the greatest discovery you would like to see in your life time?
Discovering that alien life is not only possible, but real.
You work for the NCCR PlanetS. What do you think will the NCCR enable you to do you couldn’t do without it?
The NCCR will allow me to achieve important knowledge of experimental simulation of ice in planetary environments.
