26.06.2019 in Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting
This interview is part of a series of the “Women in Research” blog that features young female scientists participating in the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting to increase the visibility of women in research (find more information on Facebook and Twitter).
#LINO19 young scientist Helena from Czechia is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Technische Universität Dresden (TU Dresden) in Germany. She is an experimental condensed matter physicist with a specialisation on spintronics and spin-caloritronics. Currently, she is interested in spin dependent magneto-thermal transport phenomena in materials with non-trivial spin texture. Enjoy the interview with Helena and get inspired:
What inspired you to pursue a career in science?
I was always interested in math, physics and biology and my parents convinced me that studying physics will open a broad variety of career options for me. During my studies I realised that I actually like the academic environment best and I decided for the scientific career path.
