My Work: I am an electronics scientist. I help farmers to make more profit where I design electronic circuits similar to the ones inside your mobile phone but mine collect information about the soil, and transmit data to farmer's phone.
You can watch the following video to learn more about my work!
My Typical Day: I get up before the sunrise, have breakfast, exercise, and go to work. In my work, I work mostly in office in front of PC where I design electronic circuits, program those circuits to collect and transmit data over the air,. Then, I go to the farm, place sensor and electronic devices underneath soil surface and conduct experiments. After that, I process and analyze the data collected and then I refine my design multiple times until I get the best results possible. After work, I enjoy watching movies, documentaries, talk to friends and going to the gym or beach.
What I'd do with the money: Buy electronic circuits to develop new interesting applications!
