I’m happy to announce that my career column was recently published in Nature. In this article, I talk about my scientific career, the universities that I have worked in, my supervisors and my research topics. Furthermore, I highlight the challenges that lip-reading scientists like me face in the academic environment. In addition, I tried to provide some useful guidelines for supervisors and colleagues to collaborate successfully with hearing-impaired scientists like me. From my own experience, scientists with disabilities are often determined to work especially hard to gain recognition by their peers. At the same time, the many unique challenges that disabled scientists face allows them to develop creative out-of-the box thinking. Consequently, supporting them benefits the whole scientific body. This piece has also been well-received on social media, especially on Twitter.
