The Power List 2021


Van’t Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Biggest challenge? The greatest challenge is to identify (health, food, environmental) crises before they arrive. This requires high-resolution non-target analysis and very smart data analysis.

Predictions? Just like we are seeing the progression of self-steering cars, we will progress more and more towards self-steering instruments. The need may even be greater, because there is a greater shortage of qualified analysts than qualified drivers.

Advice? HAVE FUN! Science in general and analytical science in particular is demanding and doesn’t pay well. So why be a scientist if you don’t enjoy the excitement, the freedom, and the dynamics of a young environment.
