I would say that I am interested in everything: to think about how life was created – and if it happened outside the Earth – to how an electron moves in an atom or how an electrical field surrounding an ion may catalyze a chemical reaction. Even though all my research projects are curiosity driven in the area of fundamental science, there are almost always also some interesting practical application associated. Studies of how molecules are ordered in liquid flow gave us for example a method to study protein and DNA structure in solution, an invention which we now daily apply in the laboratory. Another example, investigations how various substances can cross a lipid membrane may lead to new strategies for delivery of drugs into living cells and so on.
