“If I knew what I was doing, it wouldn't be called research.” - Albert Einstein

Some thoughts on creativity

I have a great deal of respect for the creative mind. If there is a unique human experience, it may be the ability to envision what is not yet there and the hutzpah to realize what may only have been imagined.

Integrity and ethical boundaries build confidence and trust in human interactions. I believe that the developers of scientific research and the users of its results are both responsible for maintaining this trust.
