After obtaining a PhD in computer science and having worked in the telecommunication industry, the Marie Curie Actions Intra-European Fellowship gave me the opportunity to gain a truly interdisciplinary, pure research experience in theoretical nanoscience.

Europe gave birth to the GSM communication networks standard back in the 1980s. Today, information and communication technology is growing fast and the experimental research of women like Dessislava is essential if Europe wants to come up with ground-breaking solutions, like nanonetworks and nanocommunication.
