Matti Heikinheimo, Postdoctoral Researcher in physics at University of Helsinki in Finland

I’ve known Majken since 2008, when we both participated in a particle physics graduate school event at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen. Since then I have been constantly impressed by her enthusiasm and excitement for science, and her ability to convey this mood to the people around her. She has a solid understanding of physics and astronomy, and is equipped with excellent communication skills. She has the exceptional talent of making topics in contemporary physics approachable to the non-specialist audience, without compromising the scientific content of the message.
