You’ve mentioned your research activities several times. Tell us, what are you researching?

Generation of liquid-based terahertz radiation. Right now we’re researching double-pumping of various liquids, and see how previously arranged ionization affects the efficiency of transforming optical radiation into terahertz radiation.

Is the research paused now?

Not quite. I’m lucky enough to work in science because even in the worst conditions I can ignore all the obstacles on my way to studies and research. I don’t conduct experiments, I’m dealing with modeling, articles, and analytical tasks. So, the virus doesn’t interfere with my research.

I’m happy that I realized the value of research, and decided to become a scientist. Moreover, science inspires me every day, despite the hard tasks. It even inspires me to create popular science comics! I genuinely love what I’m doing, and get emotionally charged by that.
