In situ with Donna Strickland

The Nobel prize-winning physicist on the joys of doing nothing, meeting the Pope and how her PhD completed her life’s goals. I heard about PhDs when I was still in elementary school. It stayed in my head that it’s the ultimate in education – a person who was really going to stay in school got a PhD. I just knew, even in elementary school, that I belonged in school.
