Just Do It

Anne Forde: Nanotechnology professor Jeremy Baumberg's approach to science has always been hands-on. "I was the sort of child who took everything apart," he says. Even before he entered college, he worked for computer giant IBM, writing software among "mainframe computers and clunky PCs." A couple of years later, while working on his undergraduate degree in physics at the University of Cambridge, he worked for the U.K.'s former Central Electric Generating Board. "I was always interested in practical problems and their connections to engineering," he says.
