Modern research is a complex activity that calls for a wide knowledge, training and also team work. In this talk, we will use some anecdotes from history of science and come to the modern age and discuss recent important discoveries such as the discovery of the Higgs at the LHC and that of gravitational waves at the LIGO collaboration as examples not necessarily in this order. We will also discuss some examples from mathematics and computer science. We will also discuss some contributions of underrepresented scientists. The talk will also highlight the nature of the calling of a professional researcher, and will be open to discussion from students at the end of the talk. Speaker: Prof. B.
