      Hi Jamie,

      As a lecturer at University I do both teaching and research. Both are really important to me and I really do enjoy them! I love teaching students about chemistry (especially atmospheric chemistry, my favourite topic) but I also really enjoy talking with other researchers to discuss results from experiments and how to explain them! This last bit can be like solving a puzzle and lots of scientists really get kicks out of that!

      Oh yeah, one other thing is that I love doing demonstrations to young students as part of Chemistry magic shows – that really is great fun!


      and the other is

      Hi Jamie, katelynnexxily, 456bera23,

      I enjoy my research field where I synthesize nanomaterials and use them to make fast medical devices but I love to explains science to others in simplified version by correlating it with things around us.
      You have no idea how much I am enjoying this event. Chatting with you guys and answering your questions is so much fun. You guys are really good with science . Trust me the kind of questions you all are asking I never even thought when i was of your age…..
      You all are actually Junior Einstein 🙂
