I, Kashmira Vyavaharkar, have completed my Bachelors of Science Degree majoring in Chemistry. I recently moved to Helsinki, Finland and aim to pursue my masters in the field of chemistry. Over my five years of graduation, I have studied organic, inorganic, physical, analytical and industrial areas of chemistry. I have also studied different types, preparation and application of various drugs and dyes. I have also learned to use many chemical instruments like gas chromatography, liquid/paper chromatography, HPLC, etc in the laboratory. What interests me the most about the chemistry subject is the challenging equations and complex formulas of various chemicals. I am interested in the research as well as the analysis of different chemical substances. In order to further my learning and understand the practical application of the theory I would like to do a job in this field in an organization. The possible types of job that would interest me are chemical/ laboratory assistant or junior research assistant. I believe this network would help me get in touch with professionals in the field of chemistry and help me enhance my knowledge in this subject.
