  • Measurement instruments February 17, 2020
    In my current PhD class I teach my younger colleagues how to work with measurements. It may sound straightforward, but one of the challenges is the data collection.

Thanks to many of my colleagues, I’ve had the opportunity to work with industry-embedded research since I arrived here in Gothenburg. I want to share these experiences with colleagues and students, which led […]
