"Travel Is The Key To A Career In Science": Biophotonics Specialist Maria Borovkova On How To Be Successful, While Studying And Working In Three Countries
Photonics is a scientific field which studies the applied aspects of working with optical signals; for many, it is still an obscure area. According to Maria Borovkova, PhD student at the University of Oulu and ITMO, who studies in Finland on a double-degree program, photonics, first and foremost, is a source of countless applications for optical signals. Photonics research makes possible the invention of devices and technologies that are designed to make people's lives easier. Biophotonics, which Maria is currently doing research in, helps solve some of the most challenging issues on the planet: cancer detection, Alzheimer's disease and many others. Maria Borovkova told ITMO.NEWS why photonics is one of the most important areas today, what is so special about the life of modern scientists and what opportunities should not be missed while you are still studying.
