This autumn three young Ph.D.candidates started their work journey at RoCS - Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics. Michael Haahr from Denmark is one of them.
- The Whole Sun Project, provides a unique opportunity for me to work and collaborate with experts from other European institutions, says the latest newcomer to RoCS. His name is Avijeet Prasad and he is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow.
- Three years ago, I decided to become a software developer, says Wojciech Olejarz. And this spring he started working for RoCS - Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics.
Marianne Omang has been affiliated with RoCS as an adjunct professor since she finished her PhD in 2005.
In the middle of the pandemic, Ana Belén Griñón Marín, moved from Stanford University to RoCS, UiO. She joined the team for her second postdoctoral position.
- It did not take me a long time to accept the invitation to work with RoCS. I’ve always thought that the group was no less than world-leading in its field, says Guillaume Aulanier who newly joined the Centre of Excellence at UiO.
Aditi Bhatnagar found the move from India to RoCS - Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics to be swift. She has started her way to her Doctorate Degree.
Her name is Maria Guadalupe Barrios Sazo, but she goes by Lupe. She has come all the way from Guatemala to work as a Research Software Engineer at RoCS - Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics.
- My work will be focused on the long-standing puzzle of energy transport throughout the solar atmosphere, explains Kilian Krikova.
Maryam Saberi from Iran started working at RoCS two months before the Covid-19 close-down of Norway.
- This position places me in the best research environment, says Nancy Narang who has worked as a postdoctoral fellow for RoCS since last winter.
Chandrashekhar Kalogodu from India chose RoCS - Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics, University of Oslo, to be part of one of the leading groups in solar research.
Following up his Master thesis project this summer, Daniel Jakobsson is back at RoCS working at the SolarAlma project. His work stay is made possible by the Rosseland Visitor Program.

"I was at an early age determined to learn more within astronomy" - Øystein Håvard Færder.
"Stars are the driving force to the life as we know it, so to understand the origins of life, understanding stars is crucial." - Sneha Pandit
Since April 2019, Carlos Quintero Noda is a new postdoc of the Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics (RoCS). His aim? To become a better researcher expanding his knowledge of numerical simulations, while learning how to enjoy the Norwegian winter.
"I wanted to know how it is living in one of the cities with the highest life quality in the world"
"By the time I was in upper secondary school I knew exactly how I wanted to proceed in the following years"
"I am fascinated with the nature here, and the mountains so close to Oslo. That is something you cannot find in Denmark!"
"ITA offers an ideal environment to learn and a unique opportunity to collaborate with members of the solar group whose research topics are akin to mine."
“Norway itself is welcoming - since my arrival the weather was ideal.“
