Not having to worry about anything other than whether the view out of your tent in the morning will be better here or a couple of metres over there... #spaholiday

Lightning fast this time because I was good and wrote all (most) of the text during the trip. Hit the link in my bio 🔝 for a story about views and non-views on the peaks, being chased by rain clouds, spotting whale bones and live whales, and more.

#hiking #utpåtur #friluftsliv #turjenter #fjelltur #soveute #fjellsport #allemannsretten #lofoten #moskenesøya #nowaynorway Everything always was kinda damp and we may only ever have had dry feet after a night in our sleeping bags, but the views and the adventure were worth it. Including learning how to panickingly take down and pack in my tent during gale force winds in the middle of the night. Blog post coming up soon!

About

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Simula Research Laboratory in Oslo, Norway. Using tools and techniques from both mathematics and engineering I simulate cardiac perfusion of nanoparticle drug delivery via inhalation (CUPIDO project). The incidence of cardiovascular diseases is constantly on the rise and poses a major death threat. Nanoparticle drug delivery provides a promising avenue for noninvasive and safe treatment of various cardiovascular diseases.

Previously I was Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Southampton, UK and investigated lymphatic drainage in the brain, trying to resolve the driving mechanisms behind it and its failure during age. This is particularly relevant for Alzheimer’s disease. As we age our brain’s lymphatic system slows down and if it fails entirely protein deposits in the walls of arteries lead to the onset of dementia. My PhD thesis deals with the investigation of the role of arterial pulsations as a potential major driving mechanism.
