Now that the students ended their winter sleep SQUID is getting reinforcements. First planning to join the project in late August Georg has already been working on our first mock-up.
Hello Georg! How old are you, and where are you originally from?
I am 24 years old and from Innsbruck a City in the western part of Austria somewhere in the Alps between Italy and Germany.
What is your role in the SQUID project?
I am going to take responsibility for the dynamical modelling from Mario as he has quite a lot to do designing the SCALE and setting up all the test-scenarios.
However at the moment I am mainly spending time in the basement building our first mock-up.
What did you study at your previous college, and what are you studying now here at KTH? What made you choose to study here?
I am here as an exchange student, so I am at least officially still studying at my previous college, the technical university Munich. I’ve been studying mechanical engineering there and I am extending my studies in that field here at KTH.
The choice to come here was more accidentally and based on the exchange program I am in. I don’t think I could have made a better choice though.
How did you come to join the SQUID team?
I attended Gunnar’s course on non-linear finite element methods and at some point during the course he mentioned, that the team is looking for new members. So I read up on the project and eventually I decided to join.
Where and with what do you hope to be working in ten years’ time?
I still hope to get around a bit during the next ten years which makes the where quite tricky.
To tell with what I want to work isn’t that easy either, but I would really like to work as some sort of teacher or trainer some day.
Worst space movie ever?
I like most space movies even if they are more fiction than science. However Lost in Space is the one I would call the worst I’ve ever encountered.
