Mette is an observer who works with PoGO+ (a balloon-born experiment that measures polarized gamma-rays) and who loves to bake and eat sweets.
Luca is a theorist working at the interface of particle physics and cosmology who loves pizza and Stockholm.
Dr. Angela Adamo is a young researcher affiliated with the Stockholm University Astronomy department and the Oskar Klein Centre. She has recently been awarded two prestigious grants. The first, a Starting Grant from the Swedish Research Council, provides resources to help junior researchers establish themselves.
The Swedish Research Council has awarded a Consolidator Grant to Dr. Matthew Hayes, lecturer in the Stockholm University Astronomy department, in order to enable his study of the circumgalactic medium.
The list of the young outstanding scientists who receive this year Wallenberg Academy Fellow grant was released today. One of them is Oskar Klein Centre member Matthew Hayes. We gratulate him and ask him how it feels
Michael Burgess joined the Oskar Klein Centre in mid-January as OKC fellow, after finishing his PhD in the US. His specialty is GRBs and that is why he joined with Felix Ryde in the KTH group.
Timur Delahaye is one of the OKC fellows working at the Cosmology, Particle astrophysics and String theory group (CoPS) since this summer. Lets get to know him better.
Today we publish an interview with one OKC fellow who joined us in the autumn to work in the Theory group.
Can you tell us a bit of yourself? Where are you from?
I could start with: “It was a warm summer evening in ancient Greece…” But let’s say: I am 32-years-old German, born and raised in a lovely region of North Rhine-Westphalia, called Lippe. I knew quite early in my life that I would like to be a theoretical physicist, which – with studies at Bielefeld University & École normale supérieure in Paris, work at the LMU in Munich as a postdoc, and now at the Oskar-Klein Centre – worked quite well so far…
Oscar Stål is one of the OKC fellows working at the Cosmology, Particle astrophysics and String theory group (CoPS) since August 2012. He is doing his second postdoc and his filed of interest is particle physics phenomenology. He is Swedish and studied both as undergraduate and for his PhD at Uppsala University, before moving to Hamburg.
