    Multiscale models help solve huge problems

    Knowing how long stored carbon dioxide stays in the ground or how the groundwater flows below the ground surface are difficult questions to answer. Mathematical calculations often become so complicated that computers cannot handle them.

    This kind of research began in the 1970s when oil and gas were to be extracted in the North Atlantic. Omar Richardson, a new doctor of mathematics at Karlstad University, has in his dissertation "Multiscale models and simulations for diffusion and interaction in heterogeneous domains" researched how mathematical models can provide answers to complicated questions.

    Gradual return to on-campus teaching this autumn

    On 1 June, the distance learning recommendation for universities and university colleges is lifted. Teaching and examinations can now gradually start to be held on campus to a larger extent, albeit under restrictions to reduce crowding and the risk of infection. At Karlstad University, the existing vice-chancellor’s decision stays in effect and students will gradually be welcomed back to campus after the summer.

    Executives from Sweden’s higher education institutions met with Matilda Ernkrans, Minister for Higher Education and Research, last week. The Minister said that the decision to lift the distance learning recommendation is highly anticipated but emphasised the need for a responsible return to on-campus teaching.

    Maud Bernisson, doctor of media and communication science at Karlstad University, has in her dissertation "The Public Interest in the Data Society Deconstructing the Imaginary Policy of the GDPR" analyzed definitions and uses of the public interest during the decision-making process of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
