Meet our researchers
Riitta Salmelin believes that her field of brain imaging has matured to a stage where questions ignored in the early days can now be addressed
Spotlight on love
'Academics without a permanent post experience uncertainty and stress, mainly related to financial fragility. It is not just my experience.'
Upcoming events at the school
Anna Huttunen, a multi-year student tutor and current wellbeing ambassador, shares her thoughts on student wellbeing and how it could be improved.
'It’s interesting to see how physicists and chemists can be looking at the same system, and yet arrive at very different conclusions, questions, and results. In LIBER Center of Excellence, you can see the expertise from different disciplines.'
'We could learn to listen to ourselves and be kinder to ourselves. After burning out, it's really hard to climb back up. It would be easier to stop before the fall.'
