What do you think is the future outlook for your field?

Everything seems to be becoming more and more quantitative. Analytical and critical thinkers will be much more needed in the field in the future.

What advice would you give to students entering the field?

Students in the field need to be passionate about their work and to be lovers of nature.They should be moved by the ever changing development in nature! If students don't develop a passion, their work becomes drudgery. Take advantage of opportunities as they present themselves. Be adaptive and ready to change. Welcome new opportunities!
