Our guest this week is Giuliano Didio, a PhD student at the Helsinki Institute of Life Science (HiLIFE) of the University of Helsinki, who tells us about brains and brain plasticity.
Our first podcast for 2019! Our guest this week is Markku Alho, PhD student from Aalto University, working on modelling of space plasmas and solar wind interaction with a number of bodies, including the Moon!
Our first episode about Social Sciences! Our guest this week is Anastasia Diatlova, who is a doctoral researcher in Sociology at the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Helsinki. Her research focusses on the daily experience of life and work of russian-speaking sex workers in Finland.
Our guest is Arnaud Praplan, who is an Academy Research Fellow at the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI). His research focusses on the reactive chemical compounds emitted by plants into the atmosphere and their oxidation reactions.
This episode is all about our star, the Sun! We chat with Diana Morosan, postdoctoral researcher in Solar Physics at the University of Helsinki.
In this episode we chat with Ari-Pekka Honkanen, PhD student at the Materials Physics lab of the University of Helsinki. He studies the structure of materials by "shooting" X-rays at them!
In this episode we chat with Chiara Facciotto, PhD students at Biomedicum in Helsinki. She works on how epigenetics influences cancer response to therapy.
In this episode we chat with Camille Bélanger-Champagne, post-doctoral researcher at the Helsinki Insitute of Physics. She works on instruments for nuclear safeguards, and the instrument she works on can be used by the inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency to check that facilities that handle nuclear power are using nuclear material for peaceful and civilian activies only.
In this episode we chat with Juhani Huovelin, who is a University Lecturer at the University of Helsinki and also the Principal Investigator of the Solar Intensity X-ray and particle Spectrometer (SIXS) instrument onboard the BepiColombo spacecraft.
In this episode we chat with David Weir, who is a University Researcher at the University of Helsinki, Finland. He looks at gravitational waves from processes in the early Universe.
In this episode, we are on a field trip at the International Conference of Physics Students 2018 and chat with some of the participants!
In this episode, we talk with Andrew House about his research on fat composition in young species of Atlantic Salmon.
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.
