This month we feature Christian Code as our #REBBLofTheMonth for December. Christian is a Research Scientist at AAK A/S, Head of Talent and a member of the CORE team member at REBBLS.
Check out our flash Q&A session with him below…
1. Give us a glimpse into your everyday…
The basis of my role at AAK is in the development of novel fats and oils for plant based foods and health and nutrition. A typical day for me is searching for research and patents which can be capitalised on within this field through new technologies. Eventually, I transfer this knowledge to the lab and develop some of this technology in-house or externally. Working with vegetable fats and oils for special nutrition and plant based foods is extremely exciting and I believe this is an area where I can make a real impact.
2. What have you got cooking with REBBLS Talent at the moment?
We have a few things going both internally (REBBLS working in the core) and externally (all the REBBLS out there in the world). Here’s what’s cooking now…
I am working on developing new team-building skillset for internal REBBLS members after learning about new trends in personal development skills at Unleash in Shenzen last month.
We are continuing to work on the job board to service our community members across the workforce. One thing we are looking at featuring is a way people can post their CVs for employers scouting new talent and also a way to help people find their next Biotech co-founder.
We are partnering with the PhD Cup, which will provide a communication toolset for PhD students who want to pitch their research in an understandable way to a greater audience beyond academia.
3. You have been one of the longest standing members of REBBLS, what was your motivation to join and what keeps you going with REBBLS?
When I moved to Denmark, I needed a job and a network pronto! In this way REBBLS helped me tremendously in my career and both my professional and personal life. I have found lifelong friends in the REBBLS group members. I continue to have fun and keep motivated by paying it forward. As REBBLS continues to grow both in Denmark and Internationally, I become energized to keep going. I am excited to see how REBBLS continues to transform in the future.
