In this series of videos, the Communication and Public Relations department presents six academics from a variety of disciplines who are either junior professors or who head a group of junior researchers. The range of subjects they cover is a wide one: How did our universe come into being? How can companies find the most suitable staff? How does Islam view animal welfare and environmental ethics? In addition to research topics, we will also be looking at what motivates researchers personally. What led them to their particular subject? What do they find fascinating about it? And what are the still unanswered questions in their subject?
In this portrait, mathematician Dr Theresa Simon introduces herself. As a junior professor at the Cluster of Excellence "Mathematics Münster", she studies patterns in magnets. With her research, she wants to contribute to developing new technologies in the field of storage media. In the video, she explains her research and describes the moments that excite her as a scientist.
