Title: Not all those who wander are lost

Career paths rarely go in straight lines, whethe you are successful or not. I will use my personal career path to illustrate challenges and strategies to overcome them. I will include a little of my own research in the field of starch to demonstrate how physics can be useful in non-conventional situations and the joy of interdisciplinarity. I will also talk to the issues around women in science and why this continues to be a problem.
