In this episode, we talk with Shibani Ratnayake about her research on stem cells (unspecialised cells that are in our body) and in particular on how growing stem cells is evolving into an automatised process.
In this episode, we talk with Lubna Dada about her research on aerosols (solid particles or liquid droplets in the air) and air quality, discussing also various causes of air pollution.
In this episode, we talk with Minna Myllys about her research on cometary plasma environment. She uses data from the Rosetta spacecraft to study the plasma around comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.
In this episode, we talk with Alexander Meaney about inverse problems. His research focuses on improving the current techniques in reconstructing 3D images from 2D X-Ray screenings, which has a very important application in medicine in order to expose patients to less radiation.
In this episode, we talk with Juan Landoni about mitochondrial diseases. They start from the mitochondria that are inside our cells and there is still much effort to be put into understanding them and curing them.
This episode takes us to the cooooold glaciers! Our guest this week is Yongmei Gong, who also is a TSB "honourable" member since she recently got her PhD. She works at the Institute of Atmospheric Science and Earth System Research at the University of Helsinki. She works on glaciers, and in particular on ice shelves and ice caps.
This episode takes us exploring materials! Our guest this week is Ekaterina Baibuz, who works towards her PhD at the University of Helsinki in Materials Physics. She works on simulating the behaviour of materials with computer simulations and is part of a big collaboration that aims at building a new particle accelerator at CERN called Compact Linear Collider (CLIC).
This episode takes us to interstellar space! We talk with Elisabetta Micelotta, who is an astrophysicist at the University of Helsinki. She studies interstellar dust, which is solid matter that can be found in the space between stars.
This episode takes us to the sub-arctic and arctic regions, exploring how plants grow! We talk with Friederike Gehrmann, who works on plant biology at the University of Helsinki.
This episode takes us to tropical lands where the cassava grows! We talk with Daniel Wasonga, who works at the Department of Agricultural Sciences at the University of Helsinki.
This episode is all about space! We talk with Dr. Urs Ganse, who is a postdoctoral researcher in space physics at the University of Helsinki. His work focuses on supercomputer simulations of the near-Earth space, but he is also an expert in spaceships and sci-fi movies!
For this episode we welcome the new year with a conversation with Casimir Ehrenborg, who studies electromagnetic theory for small antennas at Lund University, Sweden.
In this episode we talk with Jussi Tiira, who studies snow precipitation at the University of Helsinki.
In this episode we talk with Alok Jaiswal (Institute for Molecular Medicine Finland) about his research on cancer cells.
In this episode we discuss and have fun with Joonatan Ala-Könni, who studies lakes at the Division of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Helsinki.
