Science – Technology – Societal change
This blog was born at a time when my relationship with this world and the people in it felt like it was cracking at the seams. I was asking myself (still am) why everyone behaved like idiots, why politicians were participating in shit-fights instead of cooperating for everyone’s good, why people were fascinated by people having sex on TV instead of being fascinated by mankind for the first time trying and succeeding in landing a robotic probe on a comet travelling at 135 000 km/h, after a 10 year spacecraft mission to obtain the right orbit. Naturally, I wrote a monster post and never published it.
Two years later, I felt ready to click publish. Updates are random in appearence, theme and tone. Like it or don’t like it, what’s important is that you listen to others, and think for yourself.
What I do days and nights:
quantum stuff @ KTH
- democratizing education with Checheza
- figuring out society with Piratpartiet
- challenge myself
- have long breakfasts
- think about stuff like how to save the world, or what is the absolute shortest way to the metro station
Speaking, chatting, debating etc.
I regularly do popular science talks and presentations on Quantum Technologies and Quantum Physics.
It is mindboggling to me that tax-funded research is still unaccessible to the majority of the population. I take every chance I get to talk about Open Science, since knowledge, like love, grows when we share it.
I’m an engineer and tech enthusiast, formerly project manager at Womengineer and founder of IGEday. Happy to tell you what measures we can take to get more youth and especially girls into engineering and tech, to Future-proof society.
You’re welcome to invite me to speak, moderate or join a panel on these or related subjects. If you want my expertize, give me a shout out!
