Portraits of some of the CMT people compiled by high school and compulsory school students Rebecka Jacobsson and Hanna Gawlitza. There is a short description (swe) about how these pages were created.
Name: Juan Antalaya.
Researches: Graphene – based nano electromechanics.
Began studying physics because: Math and physics were difficult and fun at the same time.
Likes about Sweden: Swedish summer!
Dislikes about Sweden: The weather.
Has tried to learn: Swedish.
Is good at: Soccer. At least when playing in Peru.
Likes: Watching science fiction movies.
Name: Danko Radic.
Researches: Carbon nano tubes and layered ferromagnetic nano structures. Hopes that the research will lead to computer hard drives that are faster, smaller and have greater capacity.
Spends his days: Staring at problems, loudly discussing problems, listening to others loudly discussing problems, brainstorming and attending the Tuesday cake event.
Likes about Sweden: How society is structured. It’s made for ordinary people, not only for the rich or only for the poor. And people dare to trust each other.
Works in Sweden because: It’s like being on vacation! You work more, but it still feels like vacation because the atmosphere at work is so much better than in many other countries.
Does: Yoga, rock climbing and karate.
Favorite book: “Autobiography of a yogi” by P. Yogananda.
Favorite words in Swedish: Ö and å. Actually knows what they mean!
Doesn’t eat: Meat. But likes zucchini, aubergine, avocados and paprika.
Name: Leonid Gorelik.
Origin: The Soviet Union.
Work tasks: Supervision of graduate students, teaching and research.
Researches: How electrons act in small systems.
Does not want to research: Graphene. It is populistic and probably will not lead to anything useful.
Became interested in physics because: In the Soviet Union at that time, physics was very popular. All physicists were young, attractive and athletic. Little boys wanted to be like them. Also, it was exciting and easy.
Likes Sweden because: It is a good place to live in. You are close to nature. You are not under pressure all the time, you can relax and think.
Eats: Swedish food, but not Swedish bread. Fortunately, there is a Russian shop in Gothenburg that sells real bread, special ravioli and good saltgurka.
Does: Beach volleyball, downhill skiing, ice skating and tennis.
Reads: In Russian. Favorite book: The Master and Margarita by Bulgakov. Nils Holgerssons Underbara resa genom Sverige, by Selma Lagerlöf, is also wonderful!
Would bring to a deserted island: A knife. It’s comforting1 to hold it in your hand.
