191. How much self-promotion is enough? (Score: 1.0000)
But since self-citations contribute to long-established metrics such as he h-index ' a measure of a researcher's productivity and impact of their publications ' abusing them may boost one's own citation record. What's more, a 2007 study by James Fowler from the University of California, San Diego, and Dag Aksnes from the Nordic Institute for Studies in Innovation, Research and Education, Oslo, found that the more a researcher cites themselves, the more other scholars cite them. At ...

192. Once a physicist: Apoorva Jayaraman (Score: 1.0000)
Apoorva Jayaraman is a Bharatanatyam artiste who performs solo concerts and conducts workshops across the world. What were some of the challenges transitioning from academia to performing arts? There is no laid-out career path in the performing arts. While creatively this could be true of both disciplines, in terms of career progression, the performing arts is not supported by any established ecosystem in India.

193. Random walk to quantum computing (Score: 1.0000)
The Google quantum hardware lab in Santa Barbara in the US, that's where I work. I learnt a lot about microwave engineering, system design and the low-temperature physics that goes on in superconducting systems – invaluable for my next endeavour. In an unprecedented move, our Santa Barbara team joined Google to form the new quantum hardware lab in 2014, maintaining a presence at the university while setting up a new lab at the company.

194. The accidental astronomer (Score: 1.0000)
Linda Nordling speaks to Bernard Asabere, Ghana's first domestic astronomer. Trailblazer: Bernard Asabere is director of the new telescope in Kuntunse, Ghana. But under the grime, the dish is getting a second life as Ghana's first ever astronomical telescope, under the leadership of Bernard Asabere, the telescope's director and Ghana's first homegrown space scientist.

195. Once a physicist: Dave Donaldson (Score: 1.0000)
What sparked your interest in physics? I was always curious about some of the basic physics of everyday life, and my father (who did an undergraduate degree in physics, and was himself raised by a PhD physicist father) did an inspirational job at stoking that basic interest over the years. Did you ever consider an academic career in physics? Yes, absolutely. My physics tutors at Oxford taught us that above all else, and it stuck.

196. Going further afield (Score: 1.0000)
What about international collaborations? We have intensive collaborations with universities outside of China, for example University College London and the University of Cambridge in the UK. Maintaining such collaborations is crucial in keeping my own research in China to a good standard. How has your research experience influenced how you recruit your own research team? My independent academic career started five years ago and since then I have recruited one postdoc and some PhD students, ...

197. Once a physicist: Elina Berglund (Score: 1.0000)
Elina Berglund is the chief technology officer and co-founder of Natural Cycles ' a fertility app that helps women to prevent, plan and monitor pregnancies. Several of my physics colleagues started measuring their temperatures as well and sending them to me to run my algorithm and give them a green or a red day. This is a rather long story and the problem came from the regulators in Sweden thinking that we should be certified as a class IIb medical device (contraception), but those that ...

198. Top talent wanted, start from scratch (Score: 1.0000)
Standing start The CUNY Advanced Science Research Center was set up in 2014, starting from nothing. When Hitoshi Murayama started his job as the founding director of the Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (IPMU) at the University of Tokyo in 2007, he found himself in a predicament. Recruited from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Ulijn, a physical chemist with expertise in nanotechnology and biomaterials, serves as the founding director of the Nanoscience ...

199. Once a physicist: Philip Earis (Score: 1.0000)
Our work enabled many people in marginalized communities to get onto the first rung of the energy ladder. Joule will better connect lab-based researchers doing pioneering fundamental materials research into energy conversion and storage, together with people involved in the energy industry at large – including those working on energy policy, energy access and techno-economic analysis. My time in India showed me that the quest for more sustainable energy depends on people with different...

200. The need for speed (Score: 1.0000)
Lorraine Bobb aligning the input optics for the streak camera in Diamond Light Source’s Diagnostics optics lab. It was at this point that I entered the realm of accelerator physics and beam diagnostics – the marriage between particle physics and engineering where particles travel at nearly the speed of light. That summer, I developed a portable scanning knife-edge system for stability measurements on beamlines and I gained first-hand experience of everyday life at a particle ...
