Making lots of mess, but in a productive way… What I do usually requires me to really get stuck in, especially because what I make is going to be used directly by consumers, so it can be really useful for me to just try out something I’ve just made directly on my skin (only if it’s got safety clearance, obviously!) and that helps make it a really hands-on job.
Me and my work
Working on innovation products in personal careRead more
I make sure that the products we develop in R&D can be made easily at our factories all over Europe. I spend most of my time making batches of the new products, then testing them in lots of different ways to make sure they’re stable and consistent, and calculating the parameters needed to make them at much larger scales. I’m also implementing a new software system to record how we manufacture all the different products we make, to see if we can use the same processes all over the world.
My Typical Day
Catching up on emails, making batches, chatting to formulators and people from the factory, working on safety, training people on software.
What I'd do with the money
Advertise my charity, which recycles old lab equipment and sends it to developing countries for use in scientific research.Read more
Improve our website (www.roro-uk.org) with more (and better) content and then make sure lots of people know about it. Maybe invest in a video camera so that we can shoot films of the equipment being used in Universities around the world.
