    What used to be a sci-fi just a few years ago becomes a reality. Every day, more and more wearable-based devices are coming into our lives. Some of them we use for their entertaining functions such as listening to music, playing games or to call our friends, but many of them can change our life in much bigger aspects. From enhancing our safety to improving our health and quality of life, the wearables devices are opening new possibilities and perspectives for our future.

    Veera recently completed her doctorate in technology and is currently continuing as a researcher in the Bio and Circular Economy research group. In her research, she aims to harness the valuable resources of wastewater, such as nutrients and energy, for reuse. The job includes a lot of experimental laboratory work with various wastewaters, as evidenced by the numerous stains on the lab coat. At one point, Veera dreamed of a career as a journalist, until technology took her along. However, she still has the same enthusiasm for communicating about research as for doing research.

Who ist the best / the funniest / the most entertaining? You decide. The victor will be awarded fame and glory and the prestigious golden microphone.
