Helmuth Moehwald: he was very creative and had visions, and he gave freedom to young scientists while being respected as a kind leader.
At the moment I am building a new center for Soft Matter at the department of Physics including the reconstruction of a building for this new center. This is challenging since I have to combine excellent science with long-term strategies and the adversities of the construction sector. Within the next 8 years the new center for Physics of Soft Matter at TU Darmstadt should get international visibility.
Do excellent science in a field you really like, write publications, gain third party funding, do networking including drinking beer with colleagues in the evenings of a conference, be courageous and never feel like a victim, be kind, and don’t think too much about career strategies. Most important: be authentic.
