Question: what made you want to go further into your career?

Hey Kellis, not too sure what you mean by this? I’d say I’m still relatively early in my career – I have been working for about 6 years but in that time I’ve had 3 jobs constantly trying to push myself forward. I chose to follow this career because I really love being involved in drug discovery and the thought of being involved in making a new medicine really motivates me! I hope this answers your question, if not let me know!

I guess the simple answer is that I enjoyed it and was good at it…

I am a stubborn and ambitious person so I like to set goals for the future and do my best to achieve them. Self motivation is something you need to progress in your career (no matter what you do) an dlife in general I would say!
Alos, I enjoy what I’m doing so tha helps too!

NEW findings and new puzzle to solve drove me further in my career. However, it did not happen in one day.
I had hesitations in the beginning as I never did high pressure research or crystallography before. I gained confidence and became interested in my research slowly over the years.
I was offered a PhD position on superconductivity. I was very excited as the project was to make new form of carbon. We were not able to make our dream compound but I found many other interesting compounds on the way. Most of them was made using high pressure. I made the new compounds and solved their structures. This is how I became a high pressure scientist and a crystallographer.
Hesitations are normal. If you have those , nothing to worry about. It will be all gone with experience and time.
