Career Conversations – by S.Ginster (group LM) #2

Dr. Samuel Lagier – How to turn your hobby into your profession

In the last episode of Career Conversations, Stefanie is talking to Dr. Samuel Lagier.
Sam has done a PhD and two PostDocs in neuroscience while his passion really was improv theatre.

At one point in his life he actually dared to jump into the unknown, combine his two passions and become a science communication coach. Today he is involved in TED events, the Exposure Hackathon and a improv theatre group called The Catalyst.

We can learn from Sam, how to plan a career so that we are in the end able to combine our hobby and work, what it takes to run your own business and the main criticism he has about the work in academia.
