Hampus participated in Rays 2014 with a project about quantum optics that opened his eyes to the exciting field of applied mathematics and physics. At the moment, he is studying his third year in Engineering Physics at Chalmers where he gets the opportunity to do what he is very passionate about – learning new things. Previously, Hampus has played table tennis on a high level and also trained younger players in the same sport. Apart from this, Hampus has also founded a science society at his former high school, aiming to spread his interest in science to others.
Jenny was a student at Rays 2016 where she did research within the field of neuroscience, something that lies close to her heart. With a great interest in medicine and how the human body works as well as a willingness to help people, it became a natural step for her to study medicine at Karolinska Institutet straight after high school. On her spare time, Jenny has danced since she was four and participated in Utställningen Unga Forskare, but her dream has always been to become a doctor. Jenny has also been engaged in an european science project, been in charge of several projects in Médecins Sans Frontières and inspired kids with her work at Vattenhallen at Lund University.
After being part of Rays 2015 with a project in mathematics, Jonna wanted to do more research and decided to perform a new study about Burmesian ämber. Jonna exhibited her new research at Utställningen Unga Forskare and won a scholarship to represent Sweden in the world’s largest science fair for youths, The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF). Since finishing her high school studies, she has been a teacher and worked at SAAB with electrical engineering for submarines before she started her university studies in Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College in London. Moreover, Jonna has played football for many years.
During the summer of 2014 Jakob was part of Rays and worked on a project in theoretical physics. By being a student at Rays, his interest within the field was increased further and led to a new project at MAX-lab in Lund. Today, he studies Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Cambridge. Besides his interest in physics and mathematics his greatest passion is cooking, which has led to a job as a chef and a collection of over 60 cookbooks. Additionally, Jakob has done internships at an engineering firm in hydraulics, and also played football since the age of 4.
