New magnets for electric cars and wind mills

Alena Vishina

I got my PhD in condensed matter physics from King’s College London and am now a researcher at the Physics and Astronomy Departments of Uppsala University. My current work is searching for new magnets for electric cars and windmills which are cheaper and less harmful to the environment.

My Soapox Science talk

I am a theoretician, which means I model those magnets on supercomputers, then experimentalists are trying to make them. And that is what I will tell you about in my Soapbox Science talk.
