      I don’t think I have a favourite one! I admire and respect many scientists

      I’d probably go for James Clerk Maxwell… Scotland’s Einstein and considered by many to be the father of the modern electronic world.

      Well, my favourite scientists are all of my friends who are scientists! They’re all very cool people, and I don’t think I could pick one of them.

      I answered this question several times with different names, as honestly I do not have only one name in my mind. This time I will not go for any big name, rather pick one unusual name.

      My PhD supervisor (Prof Ulrich Haussermann) is so far the one scientist I know who is so passionate about chemistry and he knows to say ” I don’t know”.He is my favorite scientist and a true inspiration of mine.
