I am a mother and Peruvian physicist, working as a physics teacher and doing research.
My research has been conducted at a slower pace due to my double duty. In 2012, I exhibited my work at NANO 2012 in Greece. My research is about nano particles for cancer treatment and I got a medal as a result of this work. Later, my country recognized me as a researcher and conducted interviews of me that were published in an important newspaper.
It fills me with a lot of pride because for me it is very hard, and costs me twice as much, as research in my country is a hobby.
