Emelie Svensson, M.Sc. Student

Brief Bio:
I finished my bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering in the spring 2014, from Chalmers University of Technology. My bachelor thesis was a study focusing on the protein missfolding in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, at the department of Biophysical Chemistry and Biochemistry.
With a big interest for materials and nanochemistry I continued my education with masters courses more focused in this direction and from April to October 2016 I’m doing my last project, my thesis, in collaboration with Insplorion AB.

Insplorion is a company based and founded in Gothenburg, in 2010. Their proprietary technology is a nanoplasmonic sensor utilizing the Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance (LSPR) in metal nanoparticles as a local sensing probe. The sensing is realized through nanofabricated arrays of non-interacting, identical gold nanodisks.
