In the video series "What’s Next? Junior Researchers at Münster University", we’ll be introducing nine such researchers. What are the PhD students and postdocs at the University of Münster researching into? What do they find fascinating about their subjects? What obstacles do they have to contend with? It’s a broad spectrum: for example, what part do mathematics play in cancer research? Are there optimists and pessimists among mice? How do learning robots help us to understand algorithms? And why is the study of indigenous peoples’ languages such a challenge? We’ll be taking a closer look not only at the research topics, but also at the people who are working on them.
Cristina Barca from Switzerland is a PhD candidate at the European Institute for Molecular Imaging (EIMI). Using imaging methods, she is investigating how well certain drugs work in treating strokes. In the video she provides an insight into her everyday working life and explains what is so special about being a scientist.
