Dr Gabriela Segal
Platform Technologies Specialist, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
I work for the Biological Optical Microscopy Platform as an academic specialist. I provide training on microscopes and consultation about different optical-based techniques to researchers within the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences.
What inspires me about my job is that I am always learning new things and getting challenged with hard questions from researchers. In the microscopy field there are always new advances and developments making it a really exciting area to be working in.
I would really like to have dinner with Marie Curie as she was a great example of perseverance and merit and her achievements opened a lot of doors for female scientists like myself.
