Why analytical science? To apply chemistry to solving environmental problems by qualitative and quantitative measurements. I was always intrigued by the ability of instrumentation to determine chemical structures and the nature of substances. In addition, analytical chemists have the scope to work in different areas, including water analysis, environmental chemistry, nanotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and forensic science – to name just a few.
