Dear Crystallography Professors,

I'm seriously thinking to switch from NMR to crystallography because I firmly believe that a combination of NMR and crystallography is the only way that structural biology can advance speedily as they complement each other. I graduated from the University of Michigan under Pr Erik Zuiderweg while doing multidimensional NMR. My CV is attached to this message.

Thank you for reading and I hope that you will give a chance to develop a career in crystallography.

Best Regards,
Aikaterini Rousaki
