My name is Aisha Alteneiji. I’m a Research associate at Khalifa University, EBTIC Research Centre. My background is electrical and computer engineering. So I graduated both bachelors and masters from Khalifa University.
I’m Thieme Schmidt, and I work in the Cavendish Laboratory of Physics. And I’m working on biophysics, doing DNA origami. So moving DNA in different structures.
What excites me more about my research is that it serves a large segment of customers and businesses, and it has application in almost every sector.
For me, it is an amazing platform which can build up into, actually, a novel product. That’s also what I talked about with my professor, that that could be something for future, which could translate in a fast way, that we can sense and smell. So that was very interesting to me.
EnterpriseTECH– I mean, this Programme we founded– it’s a collaboration between Khalifa University and Cambridge University. And our director, he nominated me for this Programme.
So, I’m not only working on DNA origami, but we’re also working– I’m also doing– I’m actually also in a group, which is called nanophotonics. So, we tried to do measurements of molecules. So, you can shine light on a molecule, and you sense actually what they send out. And from that, we can sense what kind of molecule there is.
Honestly, I feel like when you have a business mind with a scientist mind, you can create things.
On a global scale, for me, it’s to help others in a way, in some other way to make something more practical or better for them. Yeah, in my way, I think.
I want to be like a leader in my field.
I think curious and stubborn is huge and active.
Committed, disciplined, and curious.
Share kindness. I think that’s the best thing and do your best.
