U-M Physics Professor Christine Aidala was recently featured in the book, Blazing the Trail: Essays by Leading Women in Science. In this series of autobiographical essays, Aidala, along with 34 other successful women in the sciences share their personal stories on the steps they took to get to where they are and what they learned along the way.
Similar to the other contributing essayists, Professor Aidala sends out a positive message to all aspiring, young female scientists saying, “I feel that true success is achieving happiness, which I know I won’t fulfill unless I’m actively making both the personal and professional aspects of my life work” (Ideal & Meharchand, 2013).
