When I was a doctoral candidate at TU Dortmund University, I worked with nitrogen every day. I would chill semiconductor samples in cryostats so that I could investigate them. Today I have a doctorate in physics, but I no longer work only as a scientist—I’m also an entertainer. Admittedly, this is a rather unusual career trajectory, but back when I was an undergraduate at the university I once saw a poster for the Physikanten. I was immediately electrified, and I applied to join the group. The Physikanten are a group of scientists, actors, and presenters who stage science shows all over Germany and the rest of Europe.
