Postdoc Interview: Thomas Edwards

Thomas has been with the OKC for a couple of years now. He's originally from London, UK and grew up in an area of London called Greenwich which is known for its association to Greenwich Mean Time. He did his undergraduate degree at Southampton University (UK) and then went on to Cambridge for his Masters. After that, he moved to the University of Amsterdam for his PhD before finally ending up in Stockholm at the OKC.


Two OKC scientists receive ERC Starting Grants

In its first call for proposals, the EU's Research and Innovation program, Horizon Europe, awarded 619 million euros to early career scientists. Two of the fourteen grants given to researchers in Sweden have gone to OKC scientists. Ragnhild Lunnan will study massive stars at the end of their lives and Jón Gudmundsson will improve the instruments that study radiation from the infant universe.
