<a href=\'http://www.dark-cosmology.dk/~anja\'><strong>Anja</strong></a> received her PhD in astrophysics in 1999, she was a Nordita Fellow with Axel Brandenburg during 2002-2005 and has since 2005 been Associate Professor at the Niels Bohr Institute. Her field of research is centred around the astrophysics of cosmic dust particles, important for the thermal, dynamical and chemical conditions in many astrophysical environments. She has received numerous awards for her research and public outreach.

Valentina\'s research interests are in string theory, in particular in aspects related to the gravity/gauge duality, also known as AdS/CFT. In the last few years, she has been mainly focusing on applications of the duality to study strongly correlated many-body systems. Valentina started as Assistant Professor at the University of Iceland in 2013.

Newsletter Editor

Konstantin became a Professor of Nordita in 2010. His field of research is theoretical high-energy physics, with main interests in quantum field theory, string theory and integrable systems. He pioneered the use of integrability and Bethe ansatz in the AdS/CFT correspondence, which has led to new non-perturbative results in quantum field theory.
