ALJOŠA BOLJE is a chemist working as a Junior Researcher at the Chair of Organic Chemistry at the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, University of Ljubljana. He is a renowned researcher whose work has been published in leading journals on organic chemistry. He uses the opportunity to explain why his treasured triazolium salts are fascinating and useful, and offers some constructive criticism on why more researchers at the faculty could use these salts if only there were more cooperation between research groups. After obtaining his PhD, he wants to try his luck at laboratories abroad. In spite of this, he makes no secret of the fact that music (Temperaband, Pizzaconnection) already completes his life in many ways, and that his long-term plans involve olive trees, a vineyard and a pub.


Author: LUKA AUSEC, holds a doctorate in biosciences and can fluently read DNA – and sometimes literature. Enthusiastic about bending the body and the mind in all directions – and sometimes inwards. Enjoys spreading inspiring ideas – sometimes as tweets.
