Talks & Interviews

Below are previous talks that I gave, and meetings I attended or plan to attend. If you want the keynote/powerpoint version of any presentation (given in PDF here) please contact me!


07/01/2021: Invited talk at EAS 2021
I will be giving a talk at the Annual Meeting for the European Astronomical Society virtual conference. Rather than my research in astronomy, my talk will form part of the session called “Astronomy for planet Earth: forging a sustainable future”, and I will talk about my experience transitioning into green energy research as an astrophysicist. My talk is titled “From stars to Earth: Working on renewable energy research as an astrophysicist”.

05/18/2021: Invited plenary talk at LANL-UArizona days
I was invited to give a talk at a meeting between Los Alamos National Lab and UArizona , focused on mathematical methods in science. I will focus my talk on the part of SIGAME that converts 3D simulation data to 2D maps.

03/05/2021: Steward / NOIRLab Galaxy Group lunch talk
I gave a talk on my research developing and applying SIGAME, focusing on paper recently uploaded to arXiv.

02/25/2021: Virtual Sazerac CIDER sessions
I gave a contributed talk at the Sazerac CIDER: The Cold ISM During the Epoch of Reionisation virtual conference. Sazerac stands for Summer All Zoom Epoch of Reionisaton Astronomy Conference, and started during the pandemic in 2020. See the recording of the talk on YouTube here.


05/28/2020: Virtual Steward Early Career Scientist Talk, Tucson, AZ
I presented my ongoing research projects at the Steward Early Career Scientist Talk series. View and download a PDF version of the talk here.

02/19/2020: SIMBA Collaboration Workshop, New York, US
I was invited to talk at the SIMBA Collaboration Workshop, about my SIGAME module that simulates line emission in the far-infrared for galaxies at different redshifts using te SIMBA cosmological hydrodynamical simulations. View and download a PDF version of the talk here.


08/12/2019 to 08/16/2019: ICAE2019, Västerås, Sweden
At the International Conference on Applied Energy, I presented a conference paper that I submitted back in May and which was accepted together with roughly 800 others.

06/09/2019: DAWN Summit, Copenhagen, Denmark
I was invited to join the yearly summit at the Cosmic Dawn Center, where I gave a 15 min talk on ongoing an future SIGAME projects.

06/17/2019 to 06/21/2019: Zoom-In and Out: From the Interstellar Medium to the Large Scale Structure of the Universe
I was invited to join the 4-week NORDITA workshop devoted to the theoretical and observational studies of the interstellar medium of galaxies across cosmic time. I attended the 3rd week, and gave a 40 min presentation with the title “Reading between the lines - The benefits of modeling more than one emission line”.

02/18/2019: Meeting at Bornholms Energi & Forsyning (BEOF)
As a way of disseminating my first results in the research area of renewable energy, I traveled to the island of Bornholm and gave a talk at the transmission (and distribution) system operator BEOF in Rønne, Bornholm. We use a very valuable data set taken on Bornholm since 2017, and it therefore made much sense to present the results on the island. The paper presented, is currently under review for a PowerTech conference.
Title: ‘Analysing Power Consumption and Generation on Bornholm: Best Energy Storage Options for High Shares of Renewables’.


09/20/2018 to 09/21/2018: CITIES 5th General Consortium Meeting, Fredericia, Denmark
I participated in the annual consortium meeting of the CITIES (Centre for IT-Intelligent Energy Systems in cities) project. This project aims at improving the integration of different energy sectors, such as gas, power, district heating/cooling and biomass. Equally important is to forecast, control and optimize the interactions of these different energy sectors through the use of advanced ICT solutions.

04/20/2018: SESE Cosmology seminar
I gave a talk at my department, summarizing my recent work with SÍGAME and outlining on-going and future research projects. Title: ‘Making Sense of FIR Line Emission with Synthetic Observations’. View and download a PDF version of the talk here.

01/13/2018: Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP)
I participated as invited speaker to the breakout session about “Hot Topics in Physics”. the program here. and download my presentation slides in PDF format here.


08/15/2017: Webinar in the FIR SIG group
