wanted to see how it was, [
Was that the right
setting for you to get to know
better, and delay for later the
decision about what you wanted to
I think so, because the nice
think with biomedical engineering is
that you get to see both worlds: you
get to see the engineering part and
the medical part as well.
Did you feel fit?
No, I didn’t. I felt that
basically I did not know enough to
solve those problems. I wanted to
challenges and see how I could help.
That’s when I got my first internship
How did you get it?
I applied! [
] I had had
a couple of internships before and I
think this helps a lot.
Why did you chose an
internship in the industry?
I had already done an
internship in a lab. So in this way I
was seeing both domains.
How did you feel in
each of them?
The lab is more research-
oriented and you are free to explore
the problems you want. In the
industry I was given a problem and
also a methodology to solve it. So I
had to figure out how that
methodology could get combined in
a certain way to solve the problem
efficiently. I liked this applied
What happens when
you do not solve the problem?
That happens also during a
PhD, what happens when it doesn’t
work? That’s the whole point.
