      Hi, at the end of my science career I hope I will be able to say I made a difference and who knows discover something which will have my name 😉

      That one day in the future, the new generation of food scientists will be on “I’m a scientist get me out of here” and when asked “which scientist has inspired you to work with food?” – they will say “me!”. That way I will know that I have made an impact in the world of food science. Failing that, a Nobel prize!

      I hope I’m still as excited and enthusiastic about the science I do as I am now and that I will have transferred some of both to future generations of scientists. Hopefully some of the work I will have done will have a positive impact on the way people live.
      And of course, a Nobel prize would be nice, or a Nature paper, but now we’re just getting into the realms of fantasy!
