I love a great opportunity to make a #birthdaycake, especially when it's an opportunity to go to town on your construction skills! My Norwegian flag cake for Norway's constitution day #syttendemai #17mai is one of my absolute favourites 🍰🇳🇴. If you're curious about how it's made check out the link to my blog post 🔝

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.
