Ask an Acoustician
Have you ever experienced imposter syndrome? How did you deal with that if so?
Yes, frequently. It can be hard to ignore, especially when hear- ing about the accomplishments of others. But at the same time, I try to look beyond the surface of those accomplish- ments. I am sure that none of them came easy and are instead the result of a lot of hard work, dedication, and persever- ance. Perhaps even at great personal sacrifice. Remember that success means different things to different people and that the important thing is to try your best to achieve what is important to you. I also find that supervising and mentoring younger scientists helps with imposter syndrome; it gives you great perspective on how far you have come and reminds you how exciting it is to be working in science!
What do you want to accomplish within the next 10 years *or* before retirement?
I hope that I am able to create the same research environ- ment that my supervisors created for me. For my Honors, master’s, and PhD degrees, I have been lucky to have great supervisors and mentors. I look forward to passing that on to their grandstudents!
