      Hey Lici- I don’t work with medicines. It is super fun playing with light emitting molecules and polymers though- especially seeing how their different properties change as I print them in different patterns.

      I really enjoy my job as I do many different experiments on many different medicines that each day is never the same!

      In addition to normal routine analyses I also develop new methods then validate them! So plenty of things to keep me busy.

      I particularly like using a piece of equipment called an LC-MS. It separates out all the different ingriedients then breaks up the molecules into pieces so I can figure out what some of them are – like putting a jig saw puzzle together!
