What do you find most exciting about your career?

So many things! While we have not yet discovered ‘what life is’, we are certainly lucky to be alive during such an exciting time in the history of life on Earth: We are able to investigate terrestrial life on scales down to the femtosecond and Angstrom, as well as look to the skies in the search for evidence of life and its precursors many millions of miles beyond the planet we have called home for the last four billion years.

At the moment, an exciting idea for me is understanding what makes a bunch of molecules different from the bunch of molecules that make up a living thing. I also love travelling to new places around the world to share ideas with other researchers.
