How has AOCS helped develop your career?
AOCS has helped me to create a large international network, which has been important for me when developing new projects with partners from academia and industry. AOCS has helped me to make my research visible, which has resulted in new contacts from the industry when they need help to solve a problem/research question. It has also resulted in new collaborations with academic partners. AOCS has helped me to develop my leadership qualifications by giving me the opportunity to be part of Lipid Oxidation and Quality Division leadership.
