Science is the tool that has let us change the world (V)

Advice for someone who just finished highschool? They should study the thing they are most interested in, but they don’t have any reason to be too stressed about it, because after the bachelor you can still get into other paths. The positions are quite similar even if you have different bachelors, so, so long as you know that you want to work with science, or law or economy, even if you choose different bachelors within science you will still be…

Where would you like to end? Once I finish the master I might be able to tell you better, but for now the position I am interested in is one related to pharmacoeconomy, because I enjoy economics and see the impact of the new drugs on the health of the patient as well as on the healthcare system. The resources are limited and we have to find the way to help the highest number of people with the resources we…

How did you find your current position?

How was the experience of the bachelor? During the bachelor they only give you information about careers in science, and it was only during my last year of bachelor that I had a subject where they told me about the business side. While you are inside you don’t see all the possibilities and it is only once you are out that you start seeing all the options. I tried research and I saw that it wasn’t for me and so…

How did you end in the field you are working in? It kind of just happened. When you chose the bachelor at 18 you have no idea, you kind of hear what others who are older said but you don’t really understand what it means and they try to sell all the bachelors, specially the scientific ones, they idealize them too much. So between that, not knowing,  and that I enjoyed sciences during high school, made me decide  to do…

My first contact with death

My first contact with death

Tuesday morning, a day like any other. A bit cloudy and windy, you can start feeling the chill of winter coming. As I was on my way to the gym I decided to take a detour and pass in front of one of my favourite parks to lighten my mood with a little green. As I got closer I noticed that there were a lot of police cars, and the faces of the police officers were a little bit strained….

The science of cooking (II)

The science of cooking (II)

Cooking is way more than we think. Whenever we are cooking we are actually doing the same work as any scientist would do in their labs. The recipes may come from a recipe book, or made up in your head, but there will always be a list of ingredients and a set of instructions to mix and cook them in the appropriate way. Once you finish, you  test it by eating it. Then the results are analysed. Was the meal…

What is matter?

What is matter?

In highschool we all came to know what matter is, a simple way of saying it would be that  everything is made up from small building blocks. The first layer of this small building blocks are very small pieces known as molecules. Molecules are made up from smaller particles called atoms that are joined to each other. Atoms in turn are made up from even smaller particles, protons, neutrons, electrons. Suppose you have a glass of water and ask how…
