Career Aim / Personal Statement:

My educational background is in nano science, understood as the studies of processes at the nanometer length scale using the interdisciplinarity between chemistry, physic and biology. I started out doing my bachelor thesis on the biophysics of vesicles, and turned to DNA self-assembly (master thesis) and finally single molecular electronics, where I recently obtained a Phd. degree.


Education:

  • 2008 – 2011: Phd fellowship
    Title: Molecular Electronics, From bulk to single molecule.
    Supervisors: Kristine Kilså and Thomas Bjørnholm
    Work at the University of Copenhagen: Physical-chemical studies of molecules used for molecular electronics; UV-VIS spectroscopy (steady state and time resolved), electrochemistry, spectroelectrochemistry.
    Work at the Delft University of TechnologyMeasurement and analysis of single molecular electronic devices; mechanically controlled break junction and electro-migrated junctions.

        
  • 2005 – 2008: Master of Science in Nanotechnology at the University of Copenhagen
    Thesis title:
    FRET in DNA/PNA nanostructures
    Supervisors: Kristine Kilså and Thomas Bentin
    Techniques:
    UV-VIS spectroscopy (steady state and time resolved), miscellaneous biochemical methods.


  • 2002 – 2005: Bachelor of Science in Nanotechnology at the University of Copenhagen
    Thesis title: Nano-Goldparticles as possible initiator for membrane phase transition.
    Supervisor: Dimitrios Stamou
    Synthesis of nanoparticles (NP) and fabrication and characterisation of NP inclosed vesicles. Techniques: TEM, DLS, confocal laser scanning microscopy.
