Rene Castberg

Academic Interests

I am currently working on an optical tweezer setup and on clays.

Higher education and employment history

I completed a masters in Chemical Physics in Edinbrugh and a masters in condensed matter physics here at Oslo.

I am curently working on my PhD.

Cooperation

I am currently working closely with Jon Otto Fossum og  Zbigniew Rozynek on a project involving clay.
