Aleksa has always been curious about how the world works, and this curiosity led him to a background both in Chemistry and Physics. Constantly balancing on the boundary between the two, he has seen that even similar scientific fields use starkly different language and thus the importance of correct and accurate communication for efficient science. Working towards a PhD in Biophotonics, understanding how light interacts with biological systems, he aims to inspire people about science and help bring science and society closer together with his love for the mysteries and wonders of nature.
