My research philosophy in a nutshell:

"It is the nature of great research that one cannot predict what basic new insights about the workings of nature will emerge, nor can one dream of what practical applications will follow.”
        - John Rigden in "Hydrogen: The Essential Element", Harvard University Press, 2002.


"We do what we like, and we like what we do!"
       - Andrew W. K., 2001.
