During my PhD at NTNU, I have the opportunity to take courses from other universities to expand my knowledge and meet PhD students from other universities all around the globe. This means I can combine two of my passions: traveling and learning!
Researchers apply advanced mathematical models and powerful computers to understand what happens when nanoscale magnets are made to mimic the synchronized activity of brain neurons.
