"Hiking is an excellent opportunity to scout out backcountry skiing routes while we wait for winter to come back."
During the Besseggen hike we got to check out the first sections of the Jotunheimen Høgruta #hauteroute from afar and I can only imagine what an awesome exciting winter adventure this will make!

About

Alexandra K. Diem Alexandra K. Diem

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.
