Martin Morawietz at the Department of Geosciences will be defending his dissertation: Statistical uncertainty processing for probabilistic streamflow forecasting - Parametric and non-parametric approaches based on an autoregressive error model
M.Sc. Maria Teresa Calejo ved Farmasøytisk institutt vil forsvare sin avhandling for graden ph.d: Thermoresponsive polymers in controlled drug delivery and gene delivery.
The PhD-forum at the Department of Biosciences in collaboration with Biostruct invites to a spring seminar-series about life after the PhD. People that have taken a PhD in life science, and now work outside of academia come and tell about their experience. What have they done after the PhD, where do they work, and how did they end up there? What kind of skills apart from the scientific background has been valuable to them?

Algebraic cobordism MGL was introduced by Voevodsky as an algebro-geometric analogue of complex cobordism MU: it is the universal oriented cohomology theory for smooth schemes. A fundamental result in homotopy theory is Quillen's identification of the homotopy groups of MU with the Lazard ring. Voevodsky conjectured an analogous result for MGL, and his conjecture was recently proved for regular schemes of characteristic zero and up to p-torsion for regular schemes of charateristic p>0. I will explain Voevodsky's conjecture and sketch the proof in these cases.
