Given that you received your PhD at such a young age compared to many others in your field, what was that experience like in the formative years of your career?

It was great! It was really nice to be “launched” and not to have years of school ahead of me.

It’s a little weird now, because my “contemporaries” 30 years ago were quite a bit older than me… so while I think I’m still in my prime, a lot of my contemporaries are retiring etc.
