      Hi Jade,

      My career so far has included a lot of studying at university (Master, PhD) and getting experience doing research. I have to say, even now that I am working as a researcher, I am still learning more about how to do research: learning never ends!
      I am trying to answer questions related to space biology and plants surviving in extreme environments. Because as a researcher I have to answer questions that haven’t been answered before, I don’t know if I will find the answer by doing the experiments that I do: sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t. So, my career includes a lot of problem-solving.
