9:30 "You do seem to have a lot about computation and modeling. What role does this play in your research?"
13:00 "How good are the simulation predictions?"
19:30 "5 or 10 years down the line, what would your research lead to?"
22:45 "You have an H index of 17, which is crazy for a post-doc. What's your secret?"
25:45 "You've worked with patients, computational work, and animal work. You have these three perspectives of research, which is the easiest, which is the hardest, what are the advantages and disadvantages of all of those?"
30:30 "What do you think will be some future breakthroughs in this work and what does the future look like?"
33:15 "How much longer before you get implanted?"
34:45 "If you had unlimited funding, what would you spend it on?"
37:30 "Is there anything that we didn't talk about that you wanted to mention?"
