I went from High school, Veterinary School, Masters and PhD in Romania, to nearly a decade of research abroad in countries like Germany, Belgium, UK.
I was amongst the top people graduating from every level.
My jobs involve working towards obtaining the diploma for PhD (doctorate) or as a researcher from assistant to senior researcher.
Senior Research Fellow
I like to spend time out with friends. I like plants and animals, long walks in nature, but most of all I have fun as a scientist, in research.
My Typical Day:
On my typical laboratory day I place cells with crystals together, then I measure the response.
What I'd do with the prize money:
I would try to find an animal shelter and would use it to support animals without home or in need for treatment. During my next public engagement event I would present the animals that were treated or helped in any way by using this prize.
