People

Our group consist of typically 10-15 people and right now we consist of 1 professor, 2 laboratory engineers, 1 university lecturer, 1 university researcher, 5 Ph.D students and 3 Ms.c. students. We do a large amount of interdisciplinary and collaborational research with people from various backgrounds, i.e. biology, chemistry, health sciences, archaeology to name a few.
