I’m based in Singapore, but there are colleagues who are sitting globally. Although some of us haven’t yet met, I feel a strong sense of inclusiveness. The team includes people from different cultures, with different backgrounds and habits, and we have to collaborate. This is very challenging and interesting.
Colleagues in the lab here are mainly scientists working on other areas and we each occupy a specific position in the value chain. I talk to scientists downstream and others upstream, so you get this whole flow of information, which is a joy.
You might focus on your area, but you learn things from other areas, which is always very exciting. I’d like to build in-depth technical expertise and when I have enough knowledge, I would like to have the opportunity to take on a leadership role.
