This nanotechnology Ph.D. student describes the challenges of her job, what she likes most, her key decisions, how to get into the industry, and work-life balance. She tells us that she went into material sciences because she prefers making something that can be used on a daily basis as opposed to studying something theoretical. Now she is going even deeper into how the materials work in nanotechnology.
Chemists and materials scientists work in basic and applied research. In basic research, chemists investigate the properties, composition, and structure of matter. They also experiment with the laws that govern the combination of elements and reactions of substances to each other.
