Aarhus University Seal / Aarhus Universitets segl

Laura Slumstrup

I am a PhD student under InterCat at Aarhus University working with experimental studies of surface reactions relevant in the interstellar medium.

In 2020, I completed my Bachelor's degree in Physics at Aarhus University (AU) and started both my Master's degree and my PhD studies, also at AU. My Bachelor's thesis was performed under the surface dynamics laboratory group and Liv Hornekær. In the project, I used temperature programmed desorption to study the interaction of a curved polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) with hydrogen.

During my PhD I will continue in this area, utilizing a range of experimental techniques to study various catalytic reactions on interstellar dust grain analogue nanoparticles such as PAHs.
