How do university graduates choose a career in research? What is the appeal of academic research? Is it easy to become part of the academic community? In this project, young researchers who work at various HSE University departments speak about their research and their life beyond studies and labs, as well as share their research discoveries, personal impressions, opinions, and perspectives.

The most likely place to find Anton Buzanov is at the HSE building on Staraya Basmannaya Ulitsa, where the researcher spends nearly all his time. In his interview with the HSE Young Scientists project, he recounts his experience of leading a field expedition to Sami communities, shares his affection for teenage television shows, and observes that engaging solely in activities that bring joy can prevent burnout.
