The Power List 2020 – Power List

University of Murcia, Spain

 If you had three wishes, what would they be? 
  1. To keep reasonable good health
  2. To keep myself inspired and having ideas
  3. To keep my friends around
What piece of advice would you give to your younger self?  

Life is complicated and usually direct paths are never the good ones. Look ahead and be patient. Good things will come if you persevere… 

What was the most serendipitous OR funniest moment of your career?  

I believe I have many of those. I am a physicist by training and doing my PhD work in the optics of the eye was not planed at all. It happens by mere chance and that changed completely my entire career to become a visual optics scientist.

What was the most unexpected turn your career took?
