What was your method of explaining your thesis in 3 minutes?

What inspires you to do research?

Doing research gives me the opportunity to make the best out of my knowledge for contributing to the science society. I have always loved challenges, and always put myself in more and more unfamiliar, difficult and challenging situations, and successfully completed each of them.

If you have to dedicate your research to anyone from the past, present, or future, who would it be and why?

I would like to dedicate my research to my parents. Both of my parents are teachers and they always told me that teaching is a sacred profession and a teacher can make the world a sacred place. Our knowledge and discoveries are only useful as long as they are passed on to the next generation. Inspiration from my parents was a key thing which led me to choose a career as a researcher.
