Anu Tuomela

MSc.

PhD student

Biography

I work as a PhD student in Nano and molecular systems research unit, in the group of Physics didactics. My PhD study considers reflective learning in higher education. In addition to research interests considering teaching, learning and guidance in higher education, I am also interested in topics related to luminescence in solid materials. During my career I have investigated luminescence properties of solid materials by using synchrotron radiation.
